BBC News - Microsoft's Paul Allen sees lawsuit thrown out
For some time conspiracy theorists on the web made Paul Allen out to be some kind of hero. A popular myth was that Gates had him poisoned with intention to kill him in order to take over Microsoft, which at the time was a tiny company.
Allen is an impressive figure in the history of development. Without his early work Microsoft would likely never have risen to the dominate position it is now trying to defend. It is sad to see the older Allen make an ass out of himself in this way. Woz just made a fool of himself on Dancing with the Stars.
