    "If you can't make it good, at least make it look good."

    LMAO! This ones my favorite!

    "Microsoft programs are generally bug-free. If you visit the Microsoft hotline,
    you'll literally have to wait weeks if not months until someone calls in with
    a bug in one of our programs. 99.99% of calls turn out to be user mistakes.
    I know not a single less irrelevant reason for an update than bugfixes.
    The reasons for updates are to present more new features."

    heh. They are cute that's for sure, but I certianly wouldn't put any stock in the validity of these quotes. Some of them have been proven to be misquotes, and others just plain made up.

    Happens all the time. Just look at all the "Dan Quayle" quotes that were renamed to "Al Gore" quotes in the recent past. I dunno, they are still funny though

    Yes but what about the letter Bill Gates sent to the Caos Computer Club? I beleave he said something about the peaple there makeing things that where 'un-origanal'.... Yeah and I guess he thinks that dumpster diveing is better than simply shareing code & explaining to other how things work.
