Submission + - Recovered Bill Gates talk from 1989!

Holden Karau writes: "Hate him or love him, Bill Gates is a influential individual in the software industry. Recent archival work at the University of Waterloo has recovered a talk given by him in 1989 in which he discusses his role as a developer in the early days of Microsoft, and his views on the future of Microsoft. He also alludes to the fact that he thought that in 1981, 640k would be good enough for everyone! Especially interesting are his views on how to "solve" software piracy in the late 80s."

Established technology tends to persist in the face of new technology. -- G. Blaauw, one of the designers of System 360
