just finished all the parts. It was really good. No fighting, very friendly. I think we can all learn a lesson from this video about great pioneer rivals.............................................even they go to Canada to have gay marriages, lol. XD

I can't stand Gates' voice. Sounds like he's got Quaker Oats oatmeal stuck somewhere in his throat. Ugh! :Sleeping:

Maybe I'll get further into the video tonight...

I like this video, it's entertaining to watch them reminisce about the old times.

I think this video is good at demonstrating their relationship to many people who think it's like a catfight. Yes, they've had issues in the past, but they've learned to appreciate and value each other's existence.

The highlight of the show was when Gates admitted Steve had better taste. Their both smart people, they know their assets and they know each other well enough.

It was beautiful.

Great video. A couple of times I thought of things one would have loved to rebutted what the other was saying, so I think they both had good restraint to keep the conversation friendly and informative. I noticed Bill was usually first to respond, at times at Steve's request, which is a good move on Steve's part to formulate an answer while Bill was speaking.

The interviewers might be great writers or knowledgeable, but not very good at interviewing. The lady was especially bad, didn't speak much, and made quite a few bad comments when she did. IT was too bad because the quality of most interviews comes from the interviewers guiding the conversation.

I would have liked to have seen the video they showed before starting the interview.
