BILL GATES: Well, it's pretty amazing that it was 10 years ago that we started this event. I had a chance to go back and look at the various slide decks I've done over the 10-year period, and for better or for worse I have to say I'm very consistent, software it turns out is a pretty important thing all 10 years, and the power of computing is really changing the way business is done, and so we've seen an evolution of what that means in a very concrete sense.
