re: ethics

“In the fall of 1968 [… Gates and his friends] caused the system to crash
several times and broke the computers security system. They even altered the
files that recorded the amount of computer time they were using. […] the
Computer Center Corporation decided to hire the students to find bugs and
expose weaknesses in the computer system.”

re: GUI

"Hey, Steve, just because you broke into Xerox’s store before I did and took
the TV doesn’t mean I can’t go in later and steal the stereo."

                        --Bill Gates, Microsoft

re: Internet

"The Internet? We are not interested in it."

                        --Bill Gates, 1993
