Does This Sound Familiar? 3

  Redmond, Washington, March 20, 1992. Transcript (from memory) of meeting of John Walker and John Forbes of Autodesk and Bill Gates and Todd Needham of Microsoft.

Walker: So let me see if I understand where you're going with this, Bill. What you'd really like is if in, say, five years, everybody with a computer gets a Microsoft bill every month, just like a telephone bill, for each product they use.

Gates: Precisely.
