If you could ask Bill Gates one question, what would you ask?


Niall Kennedy spent an hour today with Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates on the company’s Redmond campus.

From the article:
I chose to ask Bill about Microsoft’s intellectual property stance against Linux and its open source developers, from the SCO Group’s litigation against IBM to Steve Ballmer’s recent claim Linux infringes on Microsoft patents after signing a patent indemnity with Novell.

It includes a full transcript of authors’ brief conversation with Bill Gates.

This is an excellent post from Niall and I hope others will find quite informative too :). It appears that Mr. Gates is not aware of SCO $50 million deal 😉
