Gates built an empire by copying the real leader....Apple.
I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

To me, he's not really helping him self there...
This line of questioning, which essentially accused Microsoft of copying other people's inventions, sent the bespectacled founder into a tirade about how Microsoft does all the stupid things first, and that other companies, learning from Microsoft's mistakes, are able to build perfect versions of a particular product or service (and subsequently get the credit for being innovators).
We racked our brains trying to think of where other companies had blatantly copied Microsoft and actually came up empty.
SSD ( Solid State Drives ) are coming , a few are available now. A 128gb from Toshiba is slated for spring. A number of Linux Distros will load up and run from memory and not need any hard drive.
Want to impress me? Show me an affordable home computer that has enough RAM to operate without a hard drive. If enough memory for most of the music in the known world can be fit into a music player the size of a cigarette pack, the why are computer users limited to a gig or two of RAM? Why not replace that clunky hard drive with about 8000G of RAM?
