Default Where would be without Bill Gates

After reading a linuxVsWindows thread i thought to myself where would be if Bill gates Never started Microsoft, would we be all using linux? What about the other microsoft software like Office which i cannot do without on a daily basis. I have got to admit i love xp and i love All of Microsofts software (except Flight Sim) I dont think i would be able to use linux!

I WANT THAT T-SHIRT!

Oh man, only I and maybe, MAYBE, one other person from my school would get it, I had to explain it to my friend sitting next to me, it was really funny, he was like "Why would you want to get that t-shirt? Just to have to explain it to everyone every 5 minutes."

I laughed.

Everyone uses Microsofts products an awful lot and probably take them for granted!

that is so funny to think about. a world with bill gates. lol. man. but really, where would we be? no windows, no nozzing. vhere vould ve be? linux? i dunno man. maybe it would be all macs around the world huh? of course, none of us can tell the future or recreate the past to recreate the present and the future so we relaly cant do anything. oh yeah, i mean we can all speculate, but whatever direction you go in the argument, you will never really have a point becuase you will always be contradicted by someone who doesn't believe the same way that you do.

Yeah; there would be IBM and Apple running a Muck - Steve Jobs would look his age instead of dreadfully old and tired; probably along with being a lot richer. Sun would be kings of the Internet. Linux just wouldn't exist because Apple, IBM and Sun would be enough competition to keep any stupid twit looking for something to hate enough oppertunity to do so.

What a bleak and dreadful idea, eh?
