Amiga Inc. aren't the only ones with a flair for PR...
« on: March 19, 2004, 10:44:07 AM »
Bill Gates, speaking at the 2004 RSA conference.

Y'know, it's One of Those Weeks, but there's something amusing about this in light of current events.  It's almost like he's taken a cue from Fleecy, or both are just victims of Powerpoint encephalitis.  Point by point, blow by blow, a product or initiative for every problem, partners like China and Russia are perfectly happy, security keeps getting better and better...

...maybe someday it'll work right, just wait...

Remmeber when they let product speak for itself?
The more presentations and marketing, the poorer product!
