Twenty years and $40 billion. They seem like good round numbers. ---->>>

There are a lot of things that go into creating success. I don't like to do just the things I like to do. I like to do things that cause the company to succeed. I don't spend a lot of time doing my favorite activities. ---->>>

I always knew I wanted to run a business someday. ---->>>

If you think about computing, there isn't just one way to compute, just like there's not just one way to move around.

But PCs continue to be important. ---->>>

The interesting thing is when we design and architect a server, we don't design it for Windows or Linux, we design it for both. We don't really care, as long as we're selling the one the customer wants.

The world got enamored with smartphones and tablets, but what's interesting is those devices don't do everything that needs to be done. Three-D printing, virtual-reality computing, robotics are all controlled by PCs. ---->>>

Productivity is grounded in the PC. Where does the computing power come from? How would you run 'USA Today' without PCs? Run a hospital without PCs? People don't want products, they want solutions. ---->>>

There are many different kinds of PCs. You have fixed, virtual, tablets, notebooks, ultrabooks, desktops, workstations. What you find in commercial PCs, business PCs, is that there's a really long tail of usage on client devices. ---->>>

Microsoft's an important partner for Dell, an important company in the industry. ---->>>
