[News] Gates Flirts with Son of Nigerian President

Meeting Bill Gates

,----[ Quote ]
| We did talk about Microsoft a little. When I mentioned I work for the
| Windows Live platform group he mentioned that this would be an
| interesting area to be in over the next few years and commented on a
| number of Windows Live services such as Windows Live Spaces, Windows
| Live Messenger and Windows Live Mail...
| The meeting ran over by 15 minutes and I felt bad for taking up so much
| of his time. As I was leaving the building I overheard the following
| exchange between the receptionist of the building and a visitor
|     Visitor: Where is Bill Gates's office?
|     Receptionist: I'm not at liberty to divulge that information.
|     Visitor: I need to see him, I just downloaded Windows Vista and I
|            have a number of complaints. 


I thought that Gates went to Nigeria only to discuss AIDS, not business and
Windows evangelism.

There was an attempt to get an OLPC copycat that runs Win[tel]dows.
