"An independent film that follows a conspiracy surrounding the fictional death of Bill Gates is scheduled to appear on the festival circuit early next year. MacArthur Park, a new feature-length independent documentary, examines the questions about the Gates 'assassination' and chronicles a year of campaigning by Citizens for Truth, a fictional grassroots group who refuse to believe the official investigation."

"The producers of the story, GMD Studios, also plan to use the site billgatesisdead.com (which incidentally runs on Linux) as a forum for people to kick around alternative theories about the investigation."

"The usual suspect likely to feature in the fictional conspiracy plots there are likely to include Apple, Netscape, Java fans, Linux enthusiasts and, inevitably, the US Department of Justice. Oracle chief, Larry Ellison, who not so long ago was himself rumoured to be dead, is sure to figure somewhere too."
