Bill Gates: Microsoft created PC industry

According to an interview ABC News conducted with Microsoft CEO Bill Gates yesterday,according to the transcript Bill says, "We're responsible for the creation of the PC industry".

GATES: We're responsible for the creation of the PC industry. The whole idea of compatible machines and lots of software - that's something we brought to computing. And so it's a responsibility for us to make sure that things like security don't get in the way of that dream. You know, its individual empowerment, information at your fingertips - we need to drive that forward.

Well thats an Arguable statement !!! Whats your opinion?

The word innovation in any context with a hint of Microsoft in it has a completely different and well established, so to speak, meaning. It means: Buying or stealing a piece of technology, releasing it with a new name, and patenting it.

These days, I don't touch anything Microsoft even with a 10-foot long pole.
