Bill Gates opened Microsoft's Professional Developer Conference this morning in Los Angeles. The event is meant to warm up developers for the forthcoming version of Windows Vista.
In addition to some small technology news announcements, the software vendor gave an on stage demonstration of Windows Vista as well as a first public demo of Office 12.
Poking a little fun, Microsoft made a movie based on the Napoleon Dynamite movie. In this picture Gates has a booth at a job fair at Napoleon's high school. The big line is for the booth "future farmers of America". Napoleon decides to talk to Gates, claiming that he is "like the best hacker".
