Jabbo posted this rather interesting website about how Bill Gates made it rich: his mother knew the chief executive officer of IBM who approved the inclusion of MS/DOS with the original IBM PC... Interesting what happened in pre-computer times (like the first version of Unix in 1970 on a DEC PDP-7), unofficially of course. And did you know that Bill's house needs 50 NT servers to run?
