    Bill Gates is so cute!
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.

    From when people were sexier than computers
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Looks like a regular day at the office. I expect executives to behave like that. Ballmer's da man! (no irony)

    I can't believe Bill Gates is leaving Microsoft!
    Are you sure? The BBC article I read quotes the fellow on stating that he is not leaving Microsoft.

    I expect senators and state representatives to be like that. Executives give me that two faced, kill you softly vibe.
