Cool guy, made Microsoft possible. Even though I do agree that linux is a much stronger operating system, Microsoft is much easier to understand, especially since it is made for computer illiterates. Good luck to Bill Gates, hope he gives money to me!
The foundation is the largest of its kind, and has given away nearly $30 billion to help fight such diseases as cancer and AIDS. Gates said that he wishes to spend more time with the foundation and focus more on education work and health issues.
Umm, I think it is great that microsoft helped people, but that is just an advertisement scheme. More specifically it is called MINDSHARE, it is like Starbucks buying a new playground for kids in a poor neighborhood, if they anonymously donated the money then it would have been a different story. But if it is a huge corporate donation, it is obviously their way to advertise their products.
