Upside: "As I discussed with Paul, if you can copy Dartmouth Basic and make it work on the 8080
processor, then we can bundle it with the Altair and jointly license it to other personal
computer makers. Your software and our hardware will sell like hotcakes to all the
electronics buffs, who, in turn, will write programs that will make personal computers useful
for ordinary people. We will sell millions of these machines -- all with your software.
Our goal should be to have a computer that runs your software on every office desktop and
in every home -- first in America and then throughout the world. I will make you filthy rich,
Bill Gates, and that is a promise!!"
