Bill Gates wanted to look good and impress everyone with his success. He decided to measure the accomplishments of Microsoft against General Motors.

The comparison went like this:

If automotive technology had kept pace with computer technology over the past few decades, we would all now be driving a V-32 instead of a V-8, and it would have a top speed of 10,000 miles per hour.

Or we could have an economy car that weighs 30 pounds and gets a thousand miles to a gallon. In either case the price of a new car would be less than $50.

In response to all this, GM responds:

"Yes, but would you really want to drive a car that crashes four times a day?"
There are just two types of people in this world, those who hear the music and those who don't.
