Anyway, quotes prove nothing. However, there are quotes from quite a large
number of sources concerning Bill Gates' affect and usage of vulgarity, and
that ought to be enough to quell reasonable doubt.
Check out "Bad Boy Ballmer" for what the author says at the end about his
discomfort with Gates glaring at him.
Anyway, I'm not so sure why you're so bent on discrediting reports of Gates'
vulgarity. Many high-powered people are quite confident enough to curse at
their inferiors. Have you led a protected life?
