Ini adalah e-mail Bill Gates pada 15 Januari 2003 kepada pihak-pihak yang berkaitan di Microsoft perihal 'pengalaman' dia menggunakan Windows.
E-mail internal ini telah dilepas ke publik dalam rangka 'transparansi' dalam manajemen Microsoft sehubungan dengan 'antitrust suit' terhadap Microsoft.
Dari isi e-mail ini, kelihatan sekali bahwa Bill Gates sendiri pun 'berang' dengan perilaku Windows, beserta 'infrastruktur'nya!

Subject: Windows Usability Systematic degradation flame
I am quite disappointed at how Windows Usability has been going backwards and the program management groups don't drive usability issues.
Let me give you my experience from yesterday.
"Death is peaceful, easy. Life is harder!"
That is the best talk I heard on the movie Twilight I saw tonight at XXI, although the overall movie is far bellow my expectation.
The only scene I like is when Edward brought Bella on the top of a (very tall) tree on the mountain high, where they sight-seeing the beautiful suroundings together.
Yes! Edward did it with his vampire power and strength, but it is adventureous and very romantic. You must see it for yourself.
The action I like the most is the family baseball acts, where they sync their ball-hit with the storm and thunder, while the Muse song Super Massive Black Hole played on the background.
The deciding duel located in the ballet class room where Edward trying to safe Bella is, however, very disappointing (I mean by the current action movie standard).
And the ending? I really hate it!
