    Largest foundation in the world. It is definitely going to be with us long after Bill kicks the bucket. But he's still got many good years left to add to the endowment.

        What I am impressed about is the continuing rapid state of technical progress in all critical areas of personal computers, from the cpu to the display to the disk drive. Our personal computers today are monsters compared to super computers of 30 years ago.

        I have done patent work in the area for more than 20 years and can tell you for a fact that the rate of technical progress remains at a very high level and must remain there in order to continue to bring us more powerful PCs in the future.

            Verto, the PC industry is one fine example of capitalism at its best: free markets breed competition, competition forces inovation, higher quality and lower prices all at the same time.

                    Good point, the contrast between software and hardware where one is proprietary and the other open.

                      Didn't some IBM exec once say the world market for PCs would only ever amount to a handfull of units?

                        1000 gigs? Good God, I thought by 240GB hard drive was enourmous...


                        My parents first computer (from back in 1994) had a 800MB hard drive. That 100GB will be, like 1,200 times larger then the hardrive of that old computer!

                          No, that was a misquote. But its been floating around the internet for many years...
