After a long life, Bill Gates finds himself in purgatory being sized up by St. Peter. "Well, Bill," says the saint, "I'm not sure whether to send you to heaven or hell. You did help society by putting computers in millions of homes, yet you also created that ghastly Windows 95! So, I'll let you decide where you want to go...and you can visit both places to help you make up your mind."

So Bill went down to hell. It was beautiful, with clean sandy beaches and gorgeous women frolicking in the perfect weather. "If this is hell, I really want to see heaven," he said.

Heaven was a place high in the clouds, very pleasant with angels drifting about, playing harps. Hell was much more enticing, so down he went.

Two weeks later, St. Peter went down to check on Bill and found him shackled to a wall as demons tortured him. "This is awful," Bill screamed. "This is nothing like the hell I visited two weeks ago! What happened to that other place?"

"That was a demo," replied St. Peter.
