  At the annual Computer Trivia show (a fundraiser in San Jose which gets a
lot of industry bigwigs together to compete on obscure computer questions
with a lot of money being raised for charity), Jean Louis-Gassee, formerly
of Apple, got Bill Gates big-time.  Gates acted as moderator for the event
which was done in Hollywood Squares-style, and he asked the question "There
is a long-running contest on the Usenet to write the most confusing or
bizarre but working C program. Name this contest."  Gassee, without a
hesitation, responded "Microsoft Windows".
