Immortal Computing!

How far would someone go in search for the truth? Especially if the perceptions are so different and each person has his/her version of the perfect truth. I personally feel that TRUTH is intangible...Then what is the purpose of History?
How sure are we of whatever happened 100 or 200 years ago??
Whatever we hear or see from the past is someone else's draft right?
But check this effort from Microsoft guys...

After all, when looking that far in the future, you never know who the end users might be.
