GatesEarlier this week Bill Gates was demoing his new media centre PC and got a rude, but familiar suprise. It was in Las Vegas at Consumer Electronics Show (CES), with help from Conan O’Brien, Gates was about to show off the new software a part of his keynote but the soon-to-be-shipped software froze up, despite two attempts. Conan thought it was funny, and he was probably trying to hold it back considering he was on the richest man in the world’s payroll.

Of lesser note, was a blue-screen-of-death that appeared on a new XBoX game, but that’s just a working demo of game, not a should be market ready operating system.
