Written by Mike Banks Valentine

Continued from page 1

Consider that Microsoft providesrepparttar desktop software to most ofrepparttar 119074 corporate world and it doesn't take much of a stretch ofrepparttar 119075 imagination to see them building in their own monitoring tools.

Add to that, "Smart Tags" that are being built into Microsoft software so that all of their products are tethered together and they now have access to virtually all of your information from Outlook, Word, your calendar, your email addresses, your files, your spreadsheets and your Powerpoint presentations.

The following quote came from a large computing company's lead engineer, he was promised anonymity:

<- begin quote ->

"Bill has held back technology in order to controlrepparttar 119076 growth at his own pace and suck up every ounce of revenue alongrepparttar 119077 way. He is a genius when it comes to business - probablyrepparttar 119078 smartest business man to ever live!

When he released MSDOS (early 80's) there were plenty of multi- tasking OSs available - he released Windows NT inrepparttar 119079 mid 90's over ten years afterrepparttar 119080 technology was available onrepparttar 119081 PC! You have to be pretty smart to hold off that kind of technology for over ten years!

The consumer is just now starting to receiverepparttar 119082 benefits of multi-tasking OS's with Windows 2000 and still has no idea how much technology they are missing!

He uses his install base of (90+%) ofrepparttar 119083 client market to control and kill every standard in his greedy profit hungry companies way.

Now he is trying to kill Java with SOAP, SNMP with CIMOM ... etc.

He killed pop3 with exchange server - you have to buy your corporate email server from Microsoft. No open email standards will stand in his way - eliminaterepparttar 119084 competition!

The bottom line is Bill isrepparttar 119085 smartest business man inrepparttar 119086 software industry and controlsrepparttar 119087 pace of technology. You will not getrepparttar 119088 technology until Bill can control and ownrepparttar 119089 market!"

<- End of quote ->

Bill Gates made $931 million as Microsoft shares rose about 2 percent, better thanrepparttar 119090 Upside 150's 1 percent gain. The Microsoft chairman was worth $50.6 billion atrepparttar 119091 end of trading on June 29, based on his company stock holdings. That would financerepparttar 119092 Big Brother centralized database called .Net quite easily.
