UseLessHuman: They developed it as a singular application, they marketed it as a singular application, they managed it like a singular application, and then when the lawyers came it they were all "It's part of the operating system".I have also noticed that with each new version the file folder window has begun to look more and more similar to a browser window.
Zaltec: Wow, how sad is it that I found that much more interesting and entertaining than most television shows? I put it on expecting to shut it off right away, and had watched 10mins before I realized it...
ltdanman44: can someone give the time frames for the good parts.
Cloudchaser Sakonige the Red Wolf: I never did get what the big deal is about including MSIE with Windows. It's not like doing so prevented people from getting another browser if they wished to do so

Its just a lot of stalling and throwing out answers to questions not asked.Its surprising how obvious Gates makes it when he stalls. He is like an amateur in debate club, picking apart specific words but presenting no rebuttal.You can spot the moments whenever he is able to plausibly deny knowledge about a product or a decision by holding his head high and speaking matter-of-fact, but when he gets cornered by his own words he is unable to make eye contact, often staring down, with speech slowing and rambling.He refuses to identify Internet Explorer as an internet browser, calling it just a tool used in 'browsing', also referring it to the collection of bits that refer to a brand and that they cannot be defined as a single product.He refuses to identify the primary distribution and marketing method of Internet Explorer, stating that it is available for download from the internet and not mentioning that it is bundled with Windows as he is often asked.He argues that definitions of terms are too narrow, then argues the definitions are too broad and vague as though he is unable to narrow down his products to fit any of the definitions unless they are 100% concise, like defining what an operating system is, stating that it is continuously changing and therefore cannot be bound to any definition.He has a hard time understanding sentences in the context of a paragraph and cant understand sentences when taken out of context.Just overall, its very obvious he is aware of his actions to limit other companies' abilities to incorporate their browsers in windows and may be trying to frustrate the questioner into giving up repeating question ...
StoPPeRmobile: Where is your video of you being grilled?
DuudeStanky: StoPPeRmobile: Where is your video of you being grilled?Why are you asking that? Are you suggesting that I should have a video of myself being questioned about anti-competitive actions taken by me as a CEO before I am allowed to comment on a video of Bill Gates?If we all had some sort of prerequisite of having to experience before commenting, the other comments both before and after mine wouldn't be permitted. I'm not saying "I'd do it much better therefore I'm better than Bill Gates" or anything. I was pointing out what he was doing in the video with my own subjective opinion at the end.
