I hereby announce, on this winter day, that this thread has nothing to do with me or my pets. With that out of the way, I can continue. Who's Bill Gates? Oh, I know, the person who's always getting stabbed at with a samurai. His murders couldn't get "Kill Bill" out of their minds even after he died, and so they had to announce it. In the form of the great yet devastating invention: the TELEVISION. Too bad the TELEVISION can't teleport your vision. Oh god, I've become an idiot. Someone save me.
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former. -Albert Einstein
seriously, how the **** do u survive in this forum all this time? bahhh...i'm ****ing drunk so good night.
lol bell, ive been wondering about this as well........
These are some of the inconveniences you have to live with when you download, especially lengthy ones.
Btw, Bill Gates and his Msdos revolutionalised the tech world, help make personal computers an important part of our lives. Msdos, Windows, as well as all subsequence releases, have bugs. That is the nature of software development, in fact, many believe that bugs make softwares less than perfect to provide for future marketing opportunities.
As for Bill Gates himself, I am a great fan of his. For such a wealthy man (one of the richest in the world) and also a very influential, he has never been arrogant. Further his charity and generosity are undeniable.
The fact that you can even download, you owe that to him. And your post and our responses are made possible thanks to Bill Gates' technology.
So have a beer, enjoy what we have, it is not the end of the world, just an inconvenience

IE is mostly garbage. About the only reason people use it is that it's bundled with Windows. I've been happier since switching to Mozilla Firefox.

I make my living by writing software for Windows OS. So I can't bring myself to hate the man.
I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code.
I don't have much to complain about IE but tons with Windows Vista, can't believe they released that piece of junk into the public. It's very unstable, things that you expect to work all the time in XP don't always work in Vista. For example opening and compressing zip files, and right clicking folders to get full menu with explore and scan options. Another annoying thing is you have to find the settings to change so you can save things in other folders besides documents such as programs. It might be good for businesses to have such things but not for home computers.
I HATE VISTA!!!
SP-3 for XP will be out shortly. Apparently it contains some 'Snooping software' in it.....but then the latest updates this month also had it, but my Firewall alerts me to it so I've blocked it. MS is run by a bunch of arrogant jerks!
Due to several complaints, I will stop using the terms "Babe" and "Baby" in reference to our female counterpart. They will now be replaced with "B*tch."

It might make Bill Gates real sad to see this thread. Or not.
I think he's an alright dude. Anyone who gives as much as he does to charity is ok in my book.

Personally, I like him. I admire his guts in business. I find it amazing that he was able to convince IBM about his vapour ware operating system without them ever seeing it in action.
Was just being sarcastic.
