Default Gates not frightened of the big bad Linux

Speaking at a shindig at the Computer History Museum, Gates said that he had seen other threats to Vole's dominance come and go and Linux will eventually go the way of OS/2.

He pointed out that everyone said that OS/2 was going to kill Microsoft and it didn't, despite Big Blue having twice the number of staff of the Vole. Other giant killers such as Novell or Borland had failed to dent Microsoft's global supremacy.
