Now that the wow has officially started, Bill Gates managed to take some time out and sit down with with Newsweek's Steven Levy to talk about what we can expect from Microsoft's next operating system and what he thinks of those Mac vs PC ads. So what did Gates have to say about Apple....
Gates on the Mac ads
"I don't know why [Apple is] acting lie it's superior. I don't even get it. "If you just want to say, 'Steve Jobs invented the world, and then the rest of us came along,' that's fine.
Gates on the next version of Windows
"It will be more user-centric. If you drop by a [public] kiosk or somebody else's PC, we can bring down your home page, your files, your fonts, your favorites and those things."
Gates on Vista's Security
Nowadays, security guys break the Mac every single day. Every single day, they come out with a total exploit, your machine can be taken over totally. I dare anybody to do that once a month on the Windows machine.
It's a great read, regardless of whether you're a Mac or a PC fan, though we wish he would have spoken up more on the Zune, the Xbox, and MS' overall strategy to get inside your living room.
