Someone who appropriates the work of others to achieve fame and fortune, claiming that it was their idea all along, and often making simple changes in its appearance to make it appear to a be a new idea.

Origin: Trey didn't write DOS, Tim did, but after buying the Quick'n'Dirty DOS dirt cheap, Trey then seat-licenced it to IBM for their nifty new "personal" computer for 30 bucks a pop. Millions of dollars later, he could afford to beg, buy borrow or steal most of the other nifty original ideas thought up by truly innovative minds during the 1980s and 1990s. The millions became billions and the rest became history as you know it.
Eventually the will be reduced to just ' gates', so 'doing a gates' and 'gating someone'.

As of 2009, the 3rd richest man in the world, he has made our lives easier through Microsoft and has redefined many times the meaning of "Personal Computer". Bill Gates, along with Steve jobs, have made our lives easier ever since the 1990's with the internet and the pc's and macs, and even though there's controversies about which is better, deep down, we all know there equal. He has donated billions of dollars to charities and will keep on doin' it until he's out of money. He is a good man and therefore deserves to be respected.
"If you had a chance to meet bill gates, would you do it?"

"I don't give a crap, hes lame."

" You're a retard."
