    Bill Gates is 40 this year.

    Hrrr..sorry but he was born on October 28, 1955.
    Gates does not earn US$7.8 Billion/year, his companies earn this sum.

    And you forgot to mention that he his the most charitable man in the world.
    One staff is paid to make sure that when he will die, no money left in his bank accounts, but to charity project and foundations.
    So now folks, it’s tiem to show some respects to the Man.

      Okay, you do realize this article could have been written back in 1995 right? Regardless, Yes Bill Gates might be the must charitable guy around but it is still to early to know what will happen to his money when he dies. In addition, when you are the world’s richest person you have to be this charitable for many reasons.

    yup, the most generous man in the world. I read in the time magazine that he is the biggest donor in India.

    What happen to all those rich indians that migrated to england? like the “man of steel” that control the world’s steel output.

    I have much respect for bill, but his ways of crushing others in the IT field has made me lost respect for him a little. Anyway, he still deserve to be respected. A good man indeed in many other ways.

    Bill Gates practices false charity. False charity is the cover-up by the wealthy to make them appear generous, when it is greed that made them rich (Lewis Mumford: Technics and Civilization)

    The reason Gates is involved in AIDS research is that AIDS and all other diseases will be cured with bio-molecular computer modeling.

    Since XP is the most retarded system available for love or money, and cannot calculate itself out of its own hole, then there is ZERO chance that Microsoft software will do the modeling.

    Bill Gates has dedicated himself bribing AIDS research foundations into using only Microsoft software, and hence Gates is directly responsible for the continued spread of AIDS, and all other disease.

    This is very simple to understand, if you know that XP is a poor system; if you don’t, you are clinically retarded. If you are clinically retarded, go take the Gates Foundation short bus.

    You cant call him selfish. That’s just wrong. He earnt all that he has and he made a huge impact on most of ours’ everyday lives. Think about what you were likely using to get to this site: A COMPUTER! And theres a pretty big chance you use Microsoft, you cant complain, imagine the useless bricks we might’ve been using if Bill Gates weren’t around to save us.

    Sorry but most of you guys are the most biased retards I have seen for a while.

    Grow up and stop insulting Bill Gates when you know full well he has given more money to charity than any man and company on the planet.

    He doesn’t bribe, giving money to a foundation does not ask them secretly to use Windows, that’s up the the people. It has no relation to the spread of AIDS you stupid twat – who ever it was the said it was.

    Grow up you bunch of ignorant tossers.

    And for those of you who did not disrespect Bill Gates or Microsoft – my respect goes out to you, even if you like Apple or/and Mac.

    Hey guys. Bill gates is the richest man on earth. He made all his wealth by his own ideas and hardwork. He made this massive business empire for himself. Its his wealth and his decision to donate how much. So please stop passing remarks on others and better look at yourself for what you can do to help others. At the end we should admire him and be a bit more realistic. Most of you passing bad comments will not even spend a penny on a poor man.

    Let’s clarify a few issues. Bill Gates started MS with a little piece of soft ware called DOS now MS DOS. It was a combination of code he, um, aquired and packaged as an oporating system for the personal computers that others were already building. The first PC was, ironicly, the Apple which was built by hand by Steave Wasniak and Steave Jobs with it’s own OS. If you want to credit some one with the existance of the computer in front of you, it should be the Steaves. Of course, computers were actually invented long befor any of these three were even born, they just got in to it at the dawn of the age of miniatureization.
    I do have to give Mr Gates props for his well known charitable contributions and his marketting. He wisely surrounded himself with people who could do the things he wanted to do and was able to keep pace with the industry. Of course he has earned his money and he can use it any way he wants to. But he should put some better quality controls and product testing systems into MS.

    Before Bill Gates and DOS, there was Steve Jobs and his OS. Before those guys, there was Cobol and Fortran. NO SINGLE PERSON is a critical element in the evolution of operating systems. We would have what we have regardless of who was involved. A few differences here and there, nothing more.

    As far as the hardware goes, Gary W. Boone would be the single most important person as far as inventing (modern) computers, since he was the one who actually invented the microchip. Yes Intel has had contention with this going back to 1971 and the 4004, however the patent office has ruled that Boone in fact invented the microchip.

    For his efforts, Boone received his weekly paycheck and that was that. The rest of the world is fundamentally changed, hundreds of billions, trillions, perhaps quadrillions of dollars have changed hands as a result of his invention, and to this day he has received exactly zip. Amazing world we live in, eh?

    I have something in common with Bill Gates that you obviously don’t…No I am not a Billionaire but I have basic numeracy. Many of your points are plain wrong ,,,,eg National Debt is 5.62 trillion , Gates earns 7.8 Billion …he could pay the debt in 10 years … Not likely , also the figures you quote are questionable anyhow.

This man makes SO MUCH MONEY he can anually FEED the ENTIRE AMERICAN POPULACE in a year and still be so FILTHY rich he wouldn’t have to worry about a single problem any of us “laymen” have to worry about.

    I have hit the point of vexation were if I must use only an abacus to break free of Microsoft’s efforts to deny me access to information while stripping me of being dependent on professionals, seeing functions once so simple have deliberately, in the name of better security, become impossible for someone schooled in a different field to master quickly. It appears they have deliberately taken from those who were part of the 1st generation to embrace the use of personal computers, a host of skills and abilities that generated and encouraged creativity and independence and by deliberate duplicity and deceit robbed us of what our own hands created. I believe that very quickly Microsoft will discover that they have destroyed themselves through their contempt for the costumer, and their belief that they are above the law.
    But, rather than vent I was hoping someone might be able to help me find a good place to start my test of alternative operating systems. I have the software for Red Hat (Linux). Right now I do not care deeply if it is not the best–that it is not Microsoft is sufficient. I only use 50gig on the machine I wish to install and master the new OS. I have 200gig on the hard drive and 2 external drives-one 250gig, one 500gig. Can anyone recommend specific websites were I might find the best instructions for instillation, and instructions for learning to twink or in writing new software afresh. (I do not have an interest in gaming capability and so I can cute a few corners there, and plan to continue with Adobe on Mac for graphics since mastering a new graphics program at this time would be a bit too much to take on at the same time. I primarily use this machine for internet research, data mining using various forms of database crunching, keeping up technologically with students, and feeding my addiction for music. Thanks.

    Born William Henry Gates, better known as
    Bill Gates. Just in case you are wondering,
    he holds only 4.5% of Microsoft, and
    according to the Bloomberg Billionaires
    Index, most of Gates’s assets are held in
    Cascade Investment LLC, an entity through
    which he owns stakes in numerous
    businesses, including Four Seasons Hotels
    and Resorts and Corbis Corp.
    This means 25% of his wealth is from
    Microsoft, while the remaining 75% consist
    of hotels, resorts, medical related stuff and
    more. If we judge a person’s wealth
    according to what he is holding onto, he is
    more of a hotelier than a software guru.
    Love him hate him, undeniably as of May
    16, 2013, Bill Gates had donated US$28
    billion to the foundation. Based on his
    current wealth at US$78 billion, this meant
    he gave away almost half of his wealth.

      Yes, I know. And Whenever people says Bill Gates is rich and greedy and need to give away more money. My advice to them is to donate 5% of their own wealth. More often than not, donating 10 dollars is a challenge for them.

      I don think you understand how the tax system works. Unless the charity is tax exempted, which is not, he must pay all the capital gained tax. He is selling down his share in Microsoft and by 2020, he will own 0 shares in Microsoft. Almost 50% of his profit are donated to charities that is not 100% controlled by him.

      Because Microsoft and his 4 season hotel operates 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Just because it is night time in India, doesn’t mean it is night time in America.

      Common sense my friends, Microsoft sells their software every second every minute every hour every day all over the world.
