Interesting article. in spite of the dislike of Bill gates by quite a few people (mostly possibly by those who know nowt about him and are going by hearsay) I like the bloke and IMHO the world is a better place because of him.


For one thing by dominating with his software he has made computing available to most of us at a reasonable price which may not have happened without him.


Of course we should also not forget his less well-known co-founder Paul Allen who like Bill Gates is a major philanthropist and does much good in the world.

I agree with you. I understand that Bill Gates was fairly ruthless in the early days, but nowadays he puts his money to very good use:
