„When someone just writes 'f**k, f**k, f**k', we just fix it, laugh and move on.“

As quoted in "Who knows?", The Guardian (26 October 2004)
Contexto: When someone just writes 'f**k, f**k, f**k', we just fix it, laugh and move on. But the difficult social issues are the borderline cases — people who do some good work, but who are also a pain in the neck.

De Abaitua interview (1998)
Contexto: The K Foundation are interesting and lively, a good laugh and they mean it. They are very dedicated to their irrational ideas, which I am wholeheartedly in favour of. …There is an underground again. Probably kill it stone dead to call it that. But I get the sense that there is an underground again, it’s not as self-conscious as it was in the Sixties.

Contexto: That would have to be the F-word. Do you want me to say it? It's so descriptive, it can be used in so many ways — it can be used lovingly, it can be used in the most hateful — it's just very versatile... and you know, it's just, sometimes no other word will do.

„[640K] 640 K ought to be enough for anybody.“

—  Bill Gates American business magnate and philanthropist 1955

Often attributed to Gates in 1981. Gates considered the IBM PC's 640 KB program memory https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conventional_memory#640_KB_barrier a significant breakthrough over 8-bit systems that were typically limited to 64 KB, but he has denied making this remark. Also see the 1989 and 1993 remarks above.
: I've said some stupid things and some wrong things, but not that. No one involved in computers would ever say that a certain amount of memory is enough for all time … I keep bumping into that silly quotation attributed to me that says 640 K of memory is enough. There's never a citation; the quotation just floats like a rumor, repeated again and again.
:* Gates (19 January 1996), " Career Opportunities in Computing—and More http://groups.google.com/group/alt.folklore.computers/msg/99ce4b0555bf35f4". Bloomberg Business News
: Do you realize the pain the industry went through while the IBM PC was limited to 640 K? The machine was going to be 512 K at one point, and we kept pushing it up. I never said that statement — I said the opposite of that.
