A very rich and successful entrepreneur, and one of the founders of Microsoft.
While people like
Steve Jobs under
often led the way in terms of innovation, it was Bill Gates that
made it affordable, and brought it to the masses.
His software is incredibly successful, and he's freaking rich. But that
's okay, because through the Bill and Melinda Gates
foundation, he has donated
so much money to the greater
good it's not even funny.
Love him or hate
him, we should at least respect him.
Personally, I prefer Apple, but I do respect
Bill Gates for being so influential, and especially charitable.
