Opening Days
Keynote: Bill Gates,
CEO of Microsoft

Mr. Gates took a look into the non-PC future of computing and Microsoft's portable device initiatives. Bill continued to tout NT's scalability by buying a car from Ford.com which he claims gets 500 million hits a day. Other demos showed devices like the Windows CE based Auto-PC allowing you to access travel information and make trip plans while driving. All of this seemed designed to underscore Bill's central point, that a unified Windows OS, in the palm and on the server, makes innovation easier.
