I don't know, I think Bill Gates is great. He dropped out of Harvard on a whim and built the world's most profitable company from the ground up. Regardless of his business ethics on his way there, he is the prime example of the responsible wealthy. He has no obligation to give away a single cent. Like all of you defending Exxon/Mobile for making billions of dollars in windfall profits, you should be defending Gates' American right to keep every cent he's ever earned; whether he could spend it in one year or a thousand years.

Gates has one of the most profitable charities in the world. The amount of money he has donated is in the multi-billions. Sure, sure, he's got so much money, what does it matter? Well it matters because hopefully he has set a precedent for anyone who comes after him to have a civic duty to help those who are considerably, and extremely, less fortunate. It should be expected when there is such a disparagy of wealth in the country. And while I may not be getting a check from him in the mail, I've read enough that I'm convinced he is making a difference in the world. And for that, he should be admired.

The only people who hate Gates are idiots and Mac fanboys.

I think the only reason he gets ragged on so much by ignorant people is because he's rich. People are jealous and just decide to make fun of him because he's a "computer nerd" or something. I'll gladly be made fun of 24-7 if I get that kind of dough.

;-D for Gates.
