SOFTWARE….Remember that Bill Gates used to say something like “If cars had advanced the way computers have, they’d cost about $10 and get a thousand miles to the gallon”?

Of course, the response was, “And if they ran Windows, they’d be in the shop once a week.”

Well, it turns out that reality is a lot like that joke. Monkey Media Report tells us the story.

UPDATE: OK, a bit of Googling confirms that Bill Gates never said this. Apparently, it’s just another urban legend.

But a good one.
