I like this "sentence" from the comments:
"most people that dont like gates is because ge is smarter then they area bunch of he has too much money."
A few things that particular user needs are ... hmmm ... spell check, and ... uh ... oh heck just a 3rd grade education.
On the topic of Microsoft and innovation, I would say that Microsoft has innovated a few things and copied a whole lot more, just like everyone else. I find the entire topic of who innovated what a little tiresome. Who invented calculus, Newton or Leibniz? Actually both, if I remember, and then each spent a whole lot of time and energy arguing over who really invented it.
Sharing ideas is actually what gets us progress.
I just realized something. Hanumizzle, my mention of calculus was entirely coincidental to yours. Sorry, it's 3 AM and I can't sleep, but I'm not entirely awake either.
