Yibbels,
     I read the article, and BG said he can't  find skilled workers in
the USA.  What about all those unemployed IT peolple whose jobs went
overseas?  Aren't they skilled?
   Gates just made another huge error in decision-making in my opinion.

Just goes to show your lack of understanding of the issue. Gonzo IT jobs, in the form of call center techs, is not an issue for Gates. Gates is interested in getting more smart people into the country to work in Redmond since he doesn't think that it is effective to try to outsource development. That is pretty much the opposite of sending the work out, i.e. it is bringing the workers in.

     By the way, I don't have the documentation, but I hear that Gates
thinks the dollar is going south, so he'
s converted to Euros.  Does someone have documentation on this?

Ask Gates' brokers and bankers. I'm sure they'd be happy to give you a straight story.

     So, American workers aren't skilled enough?  Is Gates an American?
  Do you think I'll ever buy another piece of crap from his company?

He says American workers are skilled enough, but there are not enough of them compared to the rest of the world. He wants to bring more into the USofA. Do you have a problem with that?

It seems to me that a monopoly on brains is a good thing to have.
