Bill Gates Deposition: Gates Keeps Referring to His Attacks on Competitors (Linux Included) as “Jihad” and Still Lies About Illegal Contracts

Posted in Antitrust, Bill Gates, Deception, Microsoft at 9:19 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

The ‘nice’ and ‘shy’ man from Seattle turned out to be somewhat of a monster and a mobster; even judges could see that

Al-FatahSummary: Bill Gates showed his true face years before his reputation-laundering ‘Jihad’ which he called the Gates Foundation; we look back at a few articles, then present the latest part, which will be examined more closely later

THE BILL GATES deposition tapes may seem like “old news”, but a lot of stuff in them is relevant to this day. Microsoft pretends that it’s no longer a monopolist and it’s lobbying governments to pretend “GAFA” is the real threat. Gates has been lying so much when interrogated (see the first part, second part, third part, fourth part, fifth part, sixth part, and seventh part; also see annotated transcripts and publication of some very long transcripts) that the courtroom and the judge had to laugh at him.

In 1999, for example, James V. Grimaldi of the Seattle Times — before Bill Gates started bribing this paper (as he did through the Gates Foundation!) — wrote this:

Microsoft is being sued separately by Caldera, which holds patent rights for DR-DOS. The company contends Microsoft illegally used its market power to prevent DR-DOS’ success.

Asked Boies: “Are you aware of any destruction or disposal of documents relating to DR-DOS?”

Replied Gates: “It’s possible somebody once upon a time sent an e-mail message to somebody else that DR-DOS was part of the subject of that e-mail and then the person deleted that message.”

Boies: “When you say it’s possible that someone did that, were you involved in that, Mr. Gates?”

Gates: “I doubt that every e-mail message I ever received that had the word DR-DOS in it, that I choose to preserve forever after.”

This is just one among many examples of Microsoft sabotage. In the following article (“Gates deposition makes judge laugh”) notice how Gates is quoted as using the word “Jihad” to describe his war on the competition. Is this how he justifies crimes (to himself)? Religious terminology that is so loaded? He said that about Linux [1, 2] and here too… he says so about other rivals:

The federal judge presiding over Microsoft’s antitrust trial shook his head and laughed during portions of Bill Gates’ videotaped deposition played in court last week featuring the vendor’s founder and chairman denying that his organisation launched a “jihad” against the Internet browser of rival Netscape.

In a rambling 50-minute segment pulled from Gates’ three-day deposition, Gates engaged in a verbal duel with US Justice Department attorney David Boies, splitting hairs over literal interpretations of e-mails and memos and refusing to concede that officials focused their efforts primarily on Netscape.

Boies confronted Gates with an e-mail the Microsoft chairman wrote to a subordinate on January 5, 1996 that said in part, “Winning Internet browser share is a very, very important goal for us.” Gates said he didn’t remember writing that specifically. But Boies pressed him about what organisations he would include in the term browser share.

[...]

Gates was shown a document sent to him by Brad Chase, a Microsoft vice president, on March 13, 1997 that said, “We need to continue our jihad next year . . . Browser share needs to remain a key priority for our field and marketing efforts.”

“It doesn’t say Microsoft,” Gates said in his deposition.

“Well,” said Boies, “when it says ‘we’ there, do you understand that means something other than Microsoft sir?”

“It could mean Brad Chase’s group,” Gates replied.

Gates was more forthcoming when asked what Chase meant by jihad. “I think he is referring to our vigorous efforts to make a superior product and to market that product,” Gates said.

Courtroom laughter

What a nice and honest guy, eh? A man of integrity, of truth, or science…

“…notice how Gates is quoted as using the word “Jihad” to describe his war on the competition.”Today’s media has been bribed so far and wide by this man that we’re supposed to think he’s not only a genius but a benevolent guardian of the planet and a fountain of truth.

Amazing what money can accomplish…

Without further ado, here’s the Bill Gates deposition, part 8:


The video started with a shaking (or rocking back and forth) Gates looking as nervous as a fetus waiting to be aborted. Of course he keeps lying. Again and again. Then he’s presented with evidence and he’s trying to still lie, albeit it gets harder. This is what sociopaths are like…

We expect that part 9 will be ready some time tomorrow morning.

  1. Becoming Robust to Censorship is a Technical Challenge for Web Sites That Publish Suppressed Information and Supportive Material

    Being at the mercy of third parties indebted to corporate patrons (or banks), sometimes in "reputation" or "political correctness" or "safety" clothing, is a topological issue; we need to teach more people to self-host and exercise full control over speech and information (never let those with money and power decide who can speak and who cannot)

  3. [Meme] The EPO's “New Normal”

    The rule of law is being thrown out the window/door, people send rude letters, and we’re meant to think that this is the “new normal” (laws and regulations ceasing to exist); brought by the same people who try to force-feed people all around Europe the unlawful UPC

  5. This New Edward Snowden Video is Relevant to Media Cover-up in Service of EPO Management

    We’re long mentioned the 'conspiracy of silence' regarding EPO corruption (bribes and threats from Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos contribute to this silence), so the above video, which is new, seems relevant to us



  6. EPO Home-Working (or 'Remote' Working or 'Teleworking') Isn't an Act of Generosity But of Exploitation

    Contrary to what staff may be led to believe, allowing folks to work from home is just a workaround (as the law forbids some human-to-human contact/interaction) and pretext for screwing the workers a little bit more while crushing basic rights, such as strike and protest abilities (exercising or expressing dissent)

    Last year’s EPO ‘study’ (hogwash about “quality” and other unscientific junk) was likely biased by virtue of autocrats controlling it and exploiting it for nefarious agenda and brainwashing of national delegates. The Staff Union of the EPO (SUEPO) has a new survey in the making.



  13. Many of the National Delegations (or Delegates) in the EPO's Administrative Council Have No Understanding of What They Vote on

    One must consider the possibility that ignorance or gullibility (which lack of qualifications may entail) possibly became a contributing factor — malice and bribery aside — in systemic failure of the EPO’s governance

    When not cheating on the wife, the EPO‘s “doyen” cheats in the exams and makes it into the epi Council, in effect working “[t]owards a common understanding [sic] of quality” with “patent attorneys nominated as “assessors” by the EPO, epi and BusinessEurope” (notorious lobbyists for dictators, litigation, and monopolies, neither business nor science)

    The Romanian State Office for Inventions and Trademarks (OSIM), being the equivalent of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in the sense that it covers both patents and trademarks, is a very flaky institution with no shortage of scandals; for our English-reading audiences we now have a summary of a decade’s worth of blunders and leadership changes

    Romania’s patent office has been in flux this past decade, occasionally led by people with no relevant experience, but rather political connections (like EPO President António Campinos) and sometimes forged documents and fake degrees
