Submission + - 1989 Bill Gates Talk on Microsoft

Holden Karau writes: "NewsForge has an article on a recently recovered talk Bill Gates gave back in 1989 to the University of Waterloo. Among other things, Bill talks about how in 1981, he thought that 640k would be ok for at least 10 years. Is this the source of the oft quoted Gates quote on 640k? He also covers lots of other topics, including OS/2, software piracy, the history of the software industry, and his role at Microsoft."
