Gates' big score was having IBM grant him full rights and ownership to MS/DOS, the seed for Windows.
That's funny. I thought he bought it from Tim Patterson.

Speaking of activation, royalties, etc.. Do I have to pay a royalty if I post this stolen joke?

"If Bill Gates woke up with Opra Winfrey's money, he'd jump out the window."

But I really don't know who made up the joke. It just seems to be "out there" in the ether.

Isn't it weird how times change? With Gates and Allen it seemed to me the original claim to fame with the G.W.Basic interpreter. Now people author AutoHotley, AutoIt3 etc.. and just give them away.
