Bill Gates: Quote of the Day July 17, 2013

Posted by Wolfgang Tonninger in Business, Innovation, Microsoft, Wertschöpfung.

“Welchen Beitrag leisten die neuesten technologischen und wissenschaftlichen Entwicklungen, wenn es darum geht, die realen Probleme dieser Welt zu lösen"?” – darüber diskutierten mehr als image400 Forscher aus 29 Ländern am 15. Juli beim jährlichen Faculty Summit in Redmond. Mit dabei auch Bill Gates mit einer Keynote zum Thema “Innovation und Opportunity – the Contribution of Computing to Improving Our World”.

Auf die Frage nach dem Konfliktpotenzial zwischen Commercial und Open Source Software in der “Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation” antwortete er wie folgt:

“Thank God for commercial software. It actually funds salaries, gives people jobs … and thank God for free software. Free software lets people get things out there that you can play around and build on. But the two work very well in a nice common ecosystem.” Bill Gates
