in B-Block Amphi (Eng.Building).
A look at the future through the eyes of Microsoft's Bill Gates and Sun Microsystems' Scott McNealy, as they debate "PC or NC?" Will the personal computer (PC) with its massive disks and complex operating system survive, or will we move to cheaper and simplier network computers (NC), where the operating system, your programs and data are all safely stored on big brother's gigantic network fileserver? The future shape of personal computing is being decided now, as giant corporations try to persuade you to buy into their vision. Listen to what they have to say and join in the discussion.
