Source Title:
Fortune.com article on Why Google scares Bill Gates
Story Text:

A trite, long-winded article from the most recent Fortune Magazine. Its mildly interesting to hear Gates talk himself about the Google/Microsoft stance, but its nothing the blogosphere and conspiracy nuts haven't already thought up and discussed.

Bill Gates is on a mission to build a Google killer. What got him so riled? The darling of search is moving into software—and that's Microsoft's turf

choice quotes:

As of March, roughly 100 Microsofties had left for its search nemesis.
[...]
Microsofties have always been voracious samplers of competitors' products; many used the Netscape browser for years until Microsoft's Internet Explorer was good enough. But today, stop almost anyone on campus and ask which e-mail or photo or blogging program he uses, and the answer will invariably be Google's. No wonder Bill Gates is mad.

(for jeeper's sake, someone re-word this so I seem less apathetic and lame on election day :o))
