Bill Gates Said The Xbox Is A "Fucking Insult To Everything He's Done At Microsoft"

Bill Gates confirmed Playstation guy? Maybe he'll pick up gaming as a new bachelor on the scene.

Apparently Big Bill was upset with some Windows launch, not actually mad at the Xbox co-founder, Ed Fries. Misdirected anger is never okay, especially when it's directed at the beautiful machine that gave us the Halo series.

I wouldn't per se call myself a "Bill Gates guy," so this definitely hurt his stock in the MRags portfolio. Was Melinda a huge fan of the Xbox? Would this ultimately cause their downfall? All signs are clearly pointing to yes as Melinda was a professional gamer in her spare time.

On a serious note, the Xbox did pretty damn good as far as consoles/gaming hardware went, so I'm curious if this tale from Ed is slightly fabricated or not. I mean, it was 4pm on Valentine's Day - so, maybe Bill just missed out on some afternoon delight and didn't have post-nut clarity. That's my expert analysis on the situation.
