While the former two can be interesting to the high-tech historian, the real star is Bill Gates' prediction of computing yet to come. Like the now-legendary '640k' line, some of Gates' remarks are almost laughably off-mark ('OS/2 is the way of the future!'); and yet, by and large, he had accurately, chillingly, prophesied an entire decade or two of soft- and hardware development.

All in all, a fascinating talk from, it seems, one of the most powerful speakers in CS and IT."

What the world *really* needs is a good Automatic Bicycle Sharpener.
