Gates Says Linux Best OS Ever

Don't know what to make of this ...

At a hastily convened press conference Bill Gates announced that he personally thinks that "Linux is the best OS ever."

He added, "Mundie and Ballmer are idiots. Their talk about how open source software damages intellectual property or how Linux is a cancer, is moronic. When I heard these attacks I felt sick to my stomach. How could a company that I poured my blood, sweat and tears into spread these untruths? My conscience guides me, that's why I'm before you today."

Re: Gates Says Linux Best OS Ever

I'm not sure what to think of that either... My first reaction is: hoax.

A really great humor site, covering all kinds of subject matter, is:

A post by kONGO led me to this site a while back.
