Bill Gates


I fail to see the rationale for keeping unsourced quotations (or "some blogger / some humor piece"-sourced quotations) in an article indefinitely. w:User:Gazpacho 03:18, 7 September 2007 (UTC)Reply

Eventually they will be sourced (or perhaps not). For the time being it's best to keep them. // Liftarn

They might be, I'm not familiar with them. Do they make a representation that their content is researched and accurate? Humor pieces don't generally do this, because that isn't the point.

Why would Bill Gates talk about 32-bit operating systems and IBM in the context of MSX? There was, of course, a period when Microsoft had a tacit agreement with IBM not to produce a 32-bit system, but that was in the late 80s, well past the attributed timeframe. The attribution just doesn't make sense. w:User:Gazpacho 17:14, 9 September 2007 (UTC)Reply
