    I know he's a very busy man and probably far too important to appear on Channel 9. But wouldn't it be great to get the "co-founder/chief architect/chairman"'s views on what Microsoft's doing?

    I know it's a long shot but is there any possibility that there will be a William Henry Gates III video?!

    Bill Gates did an interview with the .NET Show for the Someone@Microsoft portion of their 50th show back in May.

    We're working on getting an interview with BillG.

    In the meantime, I interviewed Marc McDonald. He went to high school with Bill Gates and was one of Microsoft's first 11 employees.

    I'm assuming Steve Balmer looks much older than he actually is.

    I hate it when I use a vector "brush" tool and it messes up when I draw an acute angle. You get that weird place where the outline of the brush crosses over itself. This also happens allot when you convert stuff to/from illustrator/flash. It's a problem that's been around for years.

    I must try that MS Acrylic - it seems to have realistic pen simulation (like pens used to draw Chinese characters) .... in meantime here comes a strip about (coming) interview with Bill G by Scoble (drawn with Tablet PC):

    shave installed this "MS Acrylic" in my Tablet Pc and I must admit: it's absolutely amazing -it is well suitable for making magnificent paintings although for drawing my tiny comic stings 475 Acrylic is certainly an overkill. Bezier curve editing is supreme in it though... tempting "...him...

    very nice!  Smiley


    re - mouse

    yes and its just one of those 10 dollar MS oem scroll mice


    re - acrylic  Aug 2005 tech preview

    this is more promising than before
    really hoping for standard MS UI - with toolbars you can drag into interface ( yes like corel - not illustrator)

    also little stuff like why is "View" flyout not the third menu item (file - edit-view) instead of way over to the right

    I do have a feeling if Scoble showed that much direspect to Ballmer he'd be fired.
