This talk was recorded and lost in the depths of the University's Computer Science Club's office until its recent rediscovery. We digitalized it for your enjoyment. In this talk, Bill discusses his role as a developer in the early days of Microsoft, and his views on the future of Microsoft. He even touches on the now famous 640K."
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."
Andareed writes: It seems that there might finally be proof of Bill Gates statement about how "640k ought to be enough for anybody". NewsForge has an article about a talk given by Bill Gates in 1989. Bill Gates apparently let slip that in 1981 he figured 640k would be good enough for the next 10 years.
