Take away their operating system monopoly and Microsoft is a bunch of
clueless thugs without an original idea in their heads. The "real
story" is how they do so little with so much and the relentlessly
negative impact they've had on personal computing. While Bill-ionaire
Gates was building a monument to his overblown ego, Jim Clark - for
10% of what Gates spent on his house! - turned the Internet into the
hottest thing in computing. Gates and company slept through that one
and the notion that they are particularly smart or plugged in is
patently absurd.
