Gates Warns on Economy; Gartner Positive on Spending

Tell us, Bill, is it all going to be OK? Bill Gates isn't so sure about this economic recovery we're supposed to be having. He says it'll take "years of digging out" before the economy really becomes stable again. And he says taxes will probably have to go up in order to balance the federal budget here in the U.S. Ouch. Bill, we're not saying you're wrong (RCPU, too, fears that a true recovery will take a very long time -- if it happens), but we liked you better when you were hocking new versions of Microsoft products at Comdex.

Gartner, meanwhile, joins the small chorus of tech analysts (the other we can think of being Forrester) telling us that IT spending will bounce back in 2010. Well, it would almost have to, wouldn't it?
