Microsoft Purchases Evil From Satan By Brian Briggs
Redmond, WA - Microsoft purchased evil from Satan for $2.7 billion after many months of tough negotiations. "We've been after Satan for some time," said CEO Steve Ballmer. "Negotiations were tough, but I think both Microsoft and the Prince of Darkness are happy with this deal."
More Evil Than Dr. Evil? By Danny Sullivan, Editor November 1, 1999
"So here's the deal -- a post on Memepool back in October noted that if you searched for "more evil than satan himself" on Google, the Microsoft home page was listed first."
"A few weeks ago, we started investigating the possibility of putting Linux on an XBOX. We played with some ideas in our heads, a render farm, a cheap office computer or a distributed crypto platform, just to start. The idea required a little bit of elbow grease, a mod chip, Linux and a bunch of free time. " MORE on Anandtech

So lets summarize
- Bill Gates has not see that a PC may need one day more than 640Kb...
- M$ has not see the boom of internet and has waited till Netscape show them what to do... (browser)
