Piracy Forms a Microsoft Friendship?

I know this is slightly old news, but I just stumbled on it again and I love it.

The Romain president told Bill Gates at a Vista launch do, “Piracy helped the young generation discover computers. It set off the development of the IT industry in Romania.”

Following that up with: “It helped Romanians improve their creative capacity in the IT industry, which has become famous around the world … Ten years ago, it was an investment in Romania’s friendship with Microsoft and with Bill Gates.”

This has to be one of the classic conversations in history :)

  1. I don’t think Gates should be feeling to bad, he did learn to program from stolen source code.
