When Bill Gates first heard about Linux

From the HELSINGIN SANOMAT

HELSINGIN SANOMAT wrote:"Oh, great. Free software", said Gates. Room enough in the world for that.
Gates added politely that this Linus was clearly a talented chap, since making an operating system is no easy business.
He did not, however, believe the statements of users, to the effect that Linux could run web servers more efficiently and more reliably than Microsoft's own Windows."


Well, what do you expect fromthe guy who said "640k should be enough..."

Yeah I liked that article. I wouldn't mind seeing BG's face when/if he reads that one. :P
