In his first AMA on Reddit, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates calls WinFS the Microsoft product he most wished had made it to market.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Microsoft founder Bill Gates dropped a few tech tidbits, including that Microsoft "was willing to buy" WhatsApp. He's also no Edward Snowden fan (no surprise).
Promising fast and efficient PC and network searches is the goal of BlackBall's BlackMagic, especially in the wake of Microsoft postponing the release WinFS until 2009. ZDNet's David Berlind talks with BlackBall Chief Executive Bob Brown.
Half of the people between 18 and 29 polled by Reuters/Ipsos say the software giant is cooler now.
Not surprisingly, the Microsoft chairman says Bing and Windows 8 are great products. He also talks about Steve Jobs, Spinal Tap, and polio during a Reddit "ask me anything" session.
Microsoft will release a public beta of its next operating system in late February of 2012, according to The Next Web.
The software maker has put a halt to an effort by a group of developers that wanted to build an operating system on top of an early test version of the Vista predecessor.
