GATES SAYS WINDOWS 95 WILL PREVIEW SOON
Published March 13, 1995
Microsoft Corp. CEO Bill Gates said the company will soon preview its Windows 95 program by sending out 400,000 test copies to selected users this month. The "much-touted, much-delayed upgrade" is scheduled to be released in August, but Gates "left open the possibility of another delay." Speaking at the CeBit Computer & Communications Trade Show in Germany, Gates said the PC in 2005 "won't look like what it is today. It'll look like many different things." He estimated 20M homes will be connected on large "web-like computers" by 2000. Gates, who said, "No single company will be able to do this," predicted that several large partnerships will develop in the next five years (BLOOMBERG BUSINESS NEWS/ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 3/13).
