4 Dell, Michael 18,000 40 Austin, TX Dell

i didnt know the guy from dell was called dell did u ?

I haven't looked up the history, but Micheal Dell was one of the youngest self made millionares (now Billionare).

He dropped out of college to start his business if I recall correctly.

So, the lesson learned is: Stay in school!!!

Wait..., drop out of school! :confused1:

How about this: Only drop out of school if you have a great business idea.

Lucky bastard  :D

True for the op sys, but it could be that if you don't run Windows or some other OS, then you're using Linux....

With Coke, they were forced to change the mix due to the new laws which made cocaine illegal, which was then replaced with caffeine.  The rest of the mix hasn't been changed, at least that I have heard of.  Oh yeah, you have Coke zero, and the like, but the original recipe for coke hasn't changed since inception, excepting the cocaine withdrawal ........  :)
