Not sure if I'm putting this post in the correct sub-forum! But my Mom really piqued my interest in this question. She thinks Bill Gates is God's gift to computers (much like she thinks Bush is God's gift to the presidency). She truly believes that she would be unable to use a computer without the Windows Graphical User Interface--and since Gates is the first one (in her mind!) to come up with this technology--he must be beyond reproach. my gut instinct says she has to be wrong in these misassumptions. any thoughts?
