Bill gates! windows xp! piracy!
i didnt write this, i thought it was interesting tho.
Microsoft has gotten sleazy. Used to be Mr. Gatess attitude toward a little piracy was in line with his place. Everyone knows he is the most successful THIEF of the 1980s, and that alone.
He got hired by a place called Seattle Micro, right out of college. He was fired, for lack of performance. (Apparently, he couldnt program his way out of a wet paper bag...) Fortunately (for Bill, that is) Seattle Micro was developing an operating system for the new (at that time) 8086 microprocessor. It could access ten times the memory of its predecessors, because it could do segment-offset addressing!
Bill snuck out the door with a copy of what was almost done. Steve Jobs finished it up. Bill sold it to I.B.M. - the rest is history.
NOW Bills head has swollen even more... if that is possible. He has finally forgotten his roots (as a thief) and is now such a hypocrite as to try to prevent others from purloining a single copy of his Win-Doze... thingy. NOW the upgrades and service packs are particular about who can install them. If you have the copy of Win XP Pro that has been floating around the Net, youre not one of them
