Personally I think he's probably the best person to know, they've got the live
data from XP phoning home. Hell, if he has put up a figure like that for
Windows crashes why are we worrying how accurate he is ?
If anything surely MS will have tried to minimise that percentage!
If people are trying to demonstrate why Linux is better than MS then surely
there's nothing better than being able to say than "Gates says" ?
Don't look a gift horse in the mouth folks. :-)
