Gotta give Bill Gates credit where credit is due. I mean, look at that face? It's obvious that the guy does know what he's talking about sometimes. Like his prediction that Asian software piracy will be under control in 10 years time. We all know piracy is never going away full stop, but Gates talks about a time when piracy starts hurting Indian and Chinese tech markets, rather than helping them (at our expense of course). And this seems, well, logical. Obviously, these countries are going to make sure pirating is cut down when they start losing money. Always a key factor in every market. It's called greed.
