Bill Gates Says “Google Earth is Fantastic!”

Bill Gates was interviewed by Charlie Rose in front of a Stanford University audience for TechNet yesterday (15-November). During the interview (more details at eweek) Bill Gates states (my emphasis):

“I’ve been told that Google is the company most like ours. That may be true. Well, we overlap in a lot of areas. We’re both software companies, so we’re competing on a lot of levels. They hire a lot of smart people, we hire a lot of smart people. Google Earth is fantastic; what they do is free and a huge benefit to all. They’re very good at knowing how to use high traffic at their sites and turning it into profit.”

My sentiments exactly! (via AllPoinstBlog)

    Nice. My grudge has never been against Bill Gates specifically, but against microsoft in general. I don’t think its all his fault that the standard OS in the world is CRAP. That’s why I’m waiting for Google OS.
