Top 10 mistakes of Bill Gates

Bill Gates is considered as a great man. Many people look up to him. And a lot of people are inspired by his life. But then again like any other human being he also has his own mistakes. Here are the top 10 mistakes of Bill Gates.

  1. United States v. Microsoft was a set of consolidated civil actions filed against Microsoft Corporation on May 18, 1998 by the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) and 20 U.S. states. Joel I. Klein was the lead prosecutor.The trial started on May 18, 1998 with the U.S. Justice Department and the Attorneys General of twenty U.S. states suing Microsoft for illegally thwarting competition in order to protect and extend its software monopoly.
  2. Bill Gates did not consider opensource. His business strategies always counter opensource principles and paradigm.You may be interested in his open-source debate In a Fortune magazine he clearly says that
    It’s easier for our software to compete with Linux when there’s piracy than when there’s not.
  3. The Windows OS made Mr. Gates the richest man in the world. But its latest iteration is bombarded with lots of negative criticisms.
  4. He allowed Windows Mobile to happen. Did he run out of innovative ideas so he settled for a miniature Windows OS for mobile phone. He could have put up a team to design the OS from ground up.
  5. He let DOS die. It was a promising OS and a very stable one.
  6. Bill Gates did not think of cloud computing probably because of his proprietary Windows OS. But this is definitely one of his biggest mistakes.
  7. He allowed Windows Millennium edition to be released. The OS was definitely a reflection of the lack of talents from Microsoft. It failed the expectation of the people. It was premature.
  8. He ignored search. Look what happened to Google now. Bill Gates already made some moves about search in the end of the 90s and it was definitely a mistake to trash it.Scobleizer once revealed in his post that Look at my last post. Now read this one over on LiveSide. It’s a short report that Microsoft executives are bragging to MVPs that “we’re in it to win.”
    I don’t think Microsoft is. The words are empty. Microsoft’s Internet execution sucks (on whole). Its search sucks. Its advertising sucks (look at that last post again). If that’s “in it to win” then I don’t get it. I saw a bunch of posts similar to the one on LiveSide coming out of the MVP Summit. I didn’t post any of them to my link blog for a reason: All were air, no real demonstrations of how Microsoft is going to lead.
  9. The Microsoft Zune is a mistake. A lot of money poured into its development but yet it did not yield enough profit.John Biggs from Crunchgear had a poetic post on “Who killed Microsoft?”.Some of the extract are as follows:
    Who killed Microsoft? Why did all those jobs get lost?
    “Not I,” said the Zune fanboy, “I got Zune, I’m no iToy Sure it didn’t do too much and too bad my girlfriend bought a Touch now we’re iTunes all the way what else do I have to say?”
  10. The Xbox on the other hand is too pricey for a gaming console and because of this; people go for other brands- the cheaper ones.This is only reason why Xbox price set to drop in war with  Sony’s PS3 and Nintendo’s top-selling Wii. Those are the top 10 mistakes of Bill Gates. These might be some of the negative side of the guy but these will never take away his greatness.

IBM Builds Super Supercomputer

IBM Builds 750,000 Core Supercomputer


IBM said it has been contracted by the DOE’s Argonne National Laboratory to build a new supercomputer that is seen as a stepping stone to Exascale computing.

Mira will be IBM’s latest supercomputer based on its BlueGene architecture, this time in the BlueGene/Q version. The system is targeted to provide a maximum processing performance of 10 PFlop/s, which translates to 10 quadrillion calculations per second. The company did not release specific details, but noted that researchers will have to scale their applications to about 750,000 cores to take advantage of Mira. The performance is about twice what the world’s fastest supercomputer currently offers.
If 750,000 cores sounds a lot, imagine that IBM already talks about exascale supercomputers that will feature (100s of millions of cores). Exascale supercomputers, which are at least 100 times faster than Mira, are expected to be available around 2020.
Argonne said that the new supercomputer will be “one of the fastest and most energy efficient supercomputers in the world after its construction and installation are complete” thanks to a combination of “innovative new chip designs and extremely efficient water cooling.” There has been no information when Mira will go into service.
