Bill Gates at Harvard Graduation Ceremony

March 23, 2010

This is a part 1 of 5 part speech by Bill Gates at Harvard, he has a good sense of humor. I found the next four parts really boring.

Listening to the entire speech it feels that he is not, what he is considered to be. Crook, mean, evil, ready to do anything to gain an upper hand in the world of technology. Instead it feels he has completely denounced that world, and entered a new phase of being a philanthropist. Looks like he is still very passionate about whatever he does.

It doesn’t matter what people talk about him, he has been one of the driving force for where the technology is today. Unlike his peers Larry Ellison or Steve Jobs who still are at the helm of their corporation. Gates has successfully passed on the baton to Steve Ballmer, and has given Microsoft a ability to hold its fort in his absence. Thats a great achievement not sure if Apple or Oracle has that capability.

Anyways the opening remarks of the speech are humorous, Its a good watch.

Good little I’m a PC ad. Emphasizing ubiquity and diverse usage of Microsoft Windows, by people belonging to melange professions and cultures. By far the best PC ad i’ve seen, in recent times…

Watch the video…

More I learn about Steve Jobs more I admire him. It was a PR stunt, it really worked then. Look at the faith Bill Gates had in Macintosh platform, so did everyone then.

Little did Jobs (or for that matter Bill Gates) know then that few years later, the same Bill Gates would give his dear platform a scare of extinction by introducing his dear Windows platform.
