I only interviewed him one time when we were a co-sponsor of WinHEC. He rocked in his chair the whole time with Carl Stork sitting nearby. I asked a bunch of questions he pretty much dismissed or answered by pouring out a gallon of meaningless techno-speak. I figured it must be a polite technique or habit he developed from a bazillion boring interviews. Somewhere in there I got some flake of a scoop about WinPad (big deal it never shipped!) And he was gone. Whatever wrongs you may or may not have done in antitrust, you are making up for them in spades now. Go for it, Bill!
