QuotesEdit

  • Don't bother trying to create a better commercial desktop OS -- it doesn't matter how hard you try, how many engineers you throw at the problem, how much money you spend, or how many years you put into it. Microsoft owns that space and, worse, the public is totally complicit with that fact. People will not stop using Windows. It is a losing battle.
    • Scott Hacker, He Who Controls the Bootloader, BYTE Magazine, August 27, 2001
  • Analysts sell out - that's their business model. But they are very concerned that they never look like they are selling out, so that makes them very prickly to work with.
    • James Plamondon, 1997, Technical Evangelist for Microsoft, [1]
