Marco Calasan has become the world's youngest Microsoft systems engineer. The 9-year-old boy from Macedonia holds four Microsoft certificates, has written a 312-page book on Windows 7, and is currently learning his fourth language. Apparently his first motto in life is "with knowledge, everything is possible." His second motto in life is "Suck this, all you dense poser-faced Mac users!"
