quote: I find it amusing that someone wouldn't get why the "father" of windows would avoid the product of a direct competitor. Personally i completely understand the logic here. if i made a product then i probably use my own over my competitors any day. and if i felt my own product to be inferior to my competitor then i'd simply do what i could to make it better but i'd never switch. That's like shooting yourself in the foot!I'm sure gates uses more than just "Microsoft products", he probably just doesn't use the products of those he considers direct competitors to his own products. Using other people products or openly promoting them would show a lack of faith in his own platform... why would he or anyone for that matter do this? Does steve jobs use windows?... you can bet the answer is no.
