Bill Gates, the man who co-founded Microsoft, doesn’t spend as much time at the company as he used too. Instead he and his wife Melinda devote their time to charity through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. That doesn’t mean there has been some shift in their pro-Microsoft stance. Melinda gates was asked recently whether she or Bill will be picking up an Apple Watch. Her response was what you would expect from a member of the Gates family.
TMZ caught up with Melinda Gates and asked her about Apple’s new smartwatch. This happened after the company’s event earlier this week where it revealed more details about the Apple Watch.
She was asked whether she or Bill are going to purchase Apple’s first smartwatch. She rubbished the idea in a heartbeat and said “No, I’m not gonna own one.”
Shooting down the question was not enough so Melinda Gates went on to add “We use Microsoft products, exclusively.” It makes sense, why wouldn’t they?
This isn’t the first time that Melinda Gates has confessed her inclination for all things Microsoft. In an interview with the New York Times Magazine a couple of years back she said that the Gates don’t use Apple products.
So of all the people in the world who can pay $10,000 for a gold Apple Watch Edition, two just bowed out.
