"Total fun. Performance art. After the deposition, came the
fireworks. The parties fought about doing the other half.
"Billg, as you'll see him referred to in the exhibits, well, at
the deposition, he don't know nuttin'. Not much, anyway, less in
the specificity. I know. Shocker. Asked if he knows what the term
evangelizing meant as used by Microsoft, his first answer was that
it's used in different ways by different people. His answer when he
is pressed for his understanding of the purpose of evangelizing is
that it's "usually to convert somebody to a religion belief."
Right. That's the ticket.
"He must have forgotten the 1997 "Evangelism is War"
confidential Microsoft memo. Well, he's a busy guy. His brain is
full. Who can recall all this stuff?"
