I often tell people I’ve got one of the best jobs at Microsoft; I get the opportunity to meet and talk with the people here who brew the special sauce that is Microsoft. Last week I got to meet and talk with the guy who first created the sauce.

Following a Microsoft event to celebrate 30 years of our Giving campaign, I sat down to chat with Bill Gates for a few minutes.  We talked about the significance of this week’s launch of Windows 8, about Windows Phone 8 and Surface. I ordered my Surface last week; Bill already has his and he’s pretty excited about it, as you‘ll see.  His keyboard’s a different color than mine, though…

Hit play and enjoy!

  • bill gates, you rock.  :D

    wish you'd come back to microsoft, but the world needs you more.  

  • great guy!

  • The windows 8 is just what the MacOS is today, all the products linked to a big system.

  • Oh man, bill looks old :( still coolest person in my book!

  • He called Windows Phone 8, Windows 8 phone.  I so prefer that name and wish they'd change it.

  • The surface sure sounds pretty exciting, can't wait to pick up mine.

    Its nice to see Bill all strong n hearty. Lol..

  • Having Bill's autograph is one of my dreams. It seems I have to hurry up.

  • now datzz really an ipad killer.!! go windwzz..go!! :D

  • His vision is amazing - years ahead of the industry and the competition. Not many people know that Microsoft had the first "Tablet PC" with pen input and handwriting recognition years ago. Surface is going to be a MASSIVE success! Can't wait to get my hands on it!

  • I have been around Microsoft software since Windows 3.51 as a hobbyist and Windows NT 4.0 as an IT professional, where I have grown to love to hear Bill Gates speak about each new version of windows. this time was no different:  I almost jumped out of my seat when I got to watch the visionary of modern home and office computing Bill Gates share his excitement for Windows 8 and Surface .

  • His vision is amazing

  • Bill looks great, and Windows 8/Phone/RT and the Surface are the best things on the market(including the great touchscreened laptops/ultrabooks from the OEMs). Windows will be on everything with touchscreen and hardly has any competition.

  • Fantastic. Thank you!

  • Windows 8 rock.. with boot level anti-virus and rootkit i am sure my PC is safe... Love it..

  • Microsoft ha rediseñado hasta su logo tipo dispuesta a desprenderse de su historia de éxitos empañada por su mala calidad apostando su cambio radical a windows 8 y windows phone 8.
