Windows at 30 and our first Interaction

Mashable piece on the history of Windows.    Back then, a small group of us from the enterprise flew out to Redmond to see a demo of Windows 1.    Bill Gates, all by himself, gave a demo.  A couple of reporters joined the group.  

Demo went fairly well, with only one minor glitch and short reboot. Reporters asked my group some questions, but we were careful to not say anything that would imply endorsement.

Reporters then turned to Gates with questions.  I was very impressed that although he looked like he was 15 years old,  he deftly handled the interaction.    We had thousands of Windows packages in the enterprise soon after that.
