Re: bill gates a t-il tant de considération pour Linux et pas pour ses proches collaborateurs ?

 "At a Mac conference in the eighties"
I'm unfimiliar with Wikiquote's policies, but if it were an article on
Wikipedia, I would remove anything using this as a "source". w:User:RN
The sourcing is inadequate here, but I have seen the video of this
statement, I believe in an early Apple promotion video, when Gates actually
was working with Apple in developing Word for the Mac, and will try to get
more information on it, if I can, within the next few hours. ~ Shadow 02:48,

I intend to keep looking between other tasks, but I've not yet found
definite sourcing of where the original clip is from, or what date it was,
though I did find 2 video clips on Youtube of Gates making the statement:
this one says circa 1984 "around the time of the introduction of the
macintosh", but it still isn't very specific. Most places give seperate dates
which isn't too impressing, and the germen wikiquote says a 1984 mac
conference as well but no source either
(http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Gates). A slashdot comment says  1984
as well. So, that's what I found after checking all of the googles for
"the Macintosh, of all the machines I've ever seen, is the only one that
meets that standard"
"And the Macintosh, of all the machines I've ever seen, is the only one
that meets that standard"
If this were a real quote, I would be expecting someone like forbes or time
magazine... hopefully someone's search goes better then mine :). w:User:RN
