Gates on Longhorn

By Deane Barker on July 1, 2003 – Gates on a future version of Windows: This is from the Bill Gates interview with USA Today. He’s talking about the information storage capabilities of Longhorn:

“Say you keep lists. Anytime that you’ve mentioned a restaurant, it automatically goes onto this list of restaurants, and your system would automatically keep track of what are the hours there, how that menu has changed. If you’ve mentioned a stock, it just goes on this list. It will keep track of what the price is, what’s going on there. If you’ve mentioned a movie, keep track of is that in the theaters, is that out on video, what have the reviews of that been? So — all these different things.”
