    While the story of burning cords on Xboxes is grabbing the headlines today, it's worth looking at an interview ABC News conducted with Microsoft CEO Bill Gates yesterday. Bill admits that Microsoft had to step up to the ockey on security - because people won't use their credit cards if they don't feel safe on their PCs.

    He also touches on Firefox, Google, Apple and free software, and says Microsoft wakes up every day thinking about DEC or Compaq or Wang. He admits that a few years ago, people were being tough on Microsoft and it deserved that bit of a thrashing. He didn't use the word thrashing.

    After all, says Gates, according to the transcript, "We're responsible for the creation of the PC industry".

    My mom says Bill Gates looks like a turtle.

    Anyway, so I guess this means they're gonna try and step it up, hmm?

    yeah, but they need to ditch the whole windows thing, and go BSD like Mac did. It's the way to go. I got to use OS X for about an hour today and I'm actually surprised, I like it.
