Bill Gates Deposition: Rich Man (Since Birth) With Arrest Record But as Arrogant as Napoleon, According to the Judge in His Case

Summary: Today we proceed to part 4 of the deposition tapes, where spoiled brat Bill Gates is actually being questioned about crimes committed whilst at Microsoft

BILL GATES hopes you forgot (or never saw) these tapes. In the first part we saw a relaxed and arrogant (overconfident) Gates, who soon (second part) became a wilted flower with not much to say in his defence (third part). Here's part four, which starts with a seemingly demented person who takes nearly a minute to answer a very simple question (with a partial lie, Netscape was the only competitor which worried them in this domain):

After the first question he tries to attack the interviewer, dismissing him as misinformed and evading the actual question, which needs to be asked and re-asked again and again.

"After the first question he tries to attack the interviewer, dismissing him as misinformed and evading the actual question, which needs to be asked and re-asked again and again."It's quite revealing, isn't it? Gates isn't a computer scientist but a well-connected and ambitious businessman who never graduated from college yet regards himself or views himself as an incredible genius who can talk down anyone who does not agree with him, dismissing perfectly informed people as dumb and a nuisance (to him at least). The judge in this case rightly characterised this sociopath (see below).

This attitudinal defect or social deficiency was widespread at Microsoft at the time and it prevails until present days. Willingness to lie and to commit crimes is almost like a job requirement, as evidence presented and extracted from the company serves to show.

Not many people remember this deposition anymore (and young people never saw it, probably not even aware of it; some were born into the era of Gates as "philanthropist" and "vaccine guru").

Bill Gates born rich"There's plenty of material about Bill, however, from the late 1990's," we've been reminded. "No one in tech liked him, and that included all the magazines and newspapers. So he used his ill-gotten gains to eliminate the trade press at the same time he replaced tech with Microsoft resellers."

For example:

BBC News (before Gates was bribing it every now and then, obviously for bias, and Microsoft UK executives took positions of power over there): Gates, a modern-day Napoleon?

"The BBC was already sucking [up to him] by then but the others cover it more neutrally," an associate of ours noted, adding some more links about it:

At the end we'll tie together all the parts and closely examine the contents, based on available transcripts and legal documents. Over a decade ago we published a lot of material obtained through subpoena.
