Um...yeah, but don't forget *this* was the guy that also predicted that
spam would be dead in two years, & that was in 2004:-

Canut....er...Gates, as the tide increased by 13% in 2005, & broke
records in 2006:- http://www.virusbtn.com/news/spam_news/2006/11_01a.xml

'What do you want to reinstall today ?'.
