[edit] "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: 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZfuEHAZerY & 

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 [1] 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
