You do know that Gates has had basically zero to do with Microsoft operations since 2006 right?

Yeah? Well, whose fault is that? He's still the largest stockholder in the company. Don`t tell me he couldn`t call up Steve Balmer and tell him to stop selling crap.

So I guess Gates gets the top mainly from getting 18.88% in China. Heh 18%? That's about the same percentage of people who own non-pirated software in China.

Oh and WTH Nigeria? Obama getting a 23% just for being 1/2 black or something? The work Gates is doing in Nigeria is one of the reasons everyone else in the world ranked him so high. But the people he helps just voted based on color, so racist.

The industrial revolution in the UK accomplished many things in the same way as Bill Gates has done in his time.
By making shoddy goods and selling them at over-inflated prices where there was no viable alternative, industrialists made a fortune. They built grand luxury houses and provided lots of employment for lots of people.
In their twilight years they had so much money, they did not know what to do with it; the suggestion was that they gave something back to society. This 'philanthropy` gave rise to parks and gardens, housing and hospitals etc throughout the industrial north, with a lot of it still extant.
However, giving lots of dosh to charitable causes does not mean that your company`s product was any good, it merely ensured that you got a prime spot in the local graveyard when your time was up.
Heaven will packed solid with the likes of BG, glad I`m an atheist.
The mortals back on Earth will endure the legacy of MS for many years to come.

"MS used to put out patches, bug fixes, and service packs. Now they just want to sell you a new version with more bugs than a Detroit housing project. That rotten bastard Bill Gates can burn in hell, for all I care. "

You do know that Gates has had basically zero to do with Microsoft operations since 2006 right?

He has spent his time and money since trying to help people and cure diseases. So damning him for software that came out 4 years after he quit working there is kinda dumb / expected from you I guess.
