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

    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.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

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