Actually, it means Officer of the Order of the British Empire. KBE is
Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire. OB is a vehicle
registration symbol for Birmingham (Great Britain), and KB is Koninkrijk
Belgie. So Bill Gates claim that no one needs more than 64 KB of memory
is true. Personally, there isn't room in my brain for more than one
Belgian of memory, as English-speaking patrons (ESP) are doubtless aware.
