yeah, right.  the only thing we can trust Bill Gates to make is yet another
phenomenally braindamaged design in a new piece of crappy software that
makes hostile viruses wreak even more havoc, even easier!  when every Intel
CPU in the world runs his virus transport software, he can take over the
whole world.  just imagine how useful it would be (to him) to put a virus
in some ActiveX junk on the Microsoft home pages and seconds later have all
Pentium computers at the Department of Justice mysteriously crash _hard_
with the CMPXCHG8B bug.  if I were in Bill Gates' shoes, I'd sure wish I
could stop law enforcement with such simple means.  law-abiding citizens:
just say NO!

if you think this year is "97", _you_ are not "year 2000 compliant".
