A very rich and successful entrepreneur, and one of the founders of Microsoft.
While people like Steve Jobs under Apple have 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.

Very rich man, founder of the multi-billion dollar company microsoft. Created the Windows Operating System, which was found to be more userfriendly and useful than other operating systems at the time.

He is always the butt of jokes and envied for his money, so dumbasses say he is "SATANZ!!!11" or Hitler, even though he is co-founder of the Bill and Melinda Gates Minority Scholarship and donates more than any other 2 celeberties to the research of AIDS. So fuck off, you stupid cocks.
Dumb Person: Bill Gatesz owes me money hes evilz!!

Me: Shut up you stupid fuck. You're just jealous you're not a goddamn genius who was the first to pick up on a good idea for money. Piss off.

A man ridiculed and envied for his wealth, when in reality he is one of the greatest philanthropist ever.
Person1: Bill Gates is Hitler!111
Person2: Last year he gave more towards polio research than every government in the western world. When he dies his son will only get $10 million dollars of inheritance; the rest will go to charity.
Person1: Bill Gates is Hitler!

Destiny chose this guy to be what he is. A fucking genius.

Owns the company Microsoft, which makes and owns the rights to Windows, Explorer, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Outlook, FrontPage, Powerpoint etc. etc.). Therefore, incredibly profitable company in Seattle, as almost every business on the planet pays it a commission for using its software (excluding those in South East Asia, for example, where the copyright and patent treaties do not apply).

For general lust for power, in US historical terms, ranks far below the other earlier Robber Barons, like say J.P. Morgan, Rockefeller etc etc.
Bill Gates, the nerdy Robber Baron with a human face.

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?"

"no, he's a nerd"

" Well he's a rich nerd"

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

" You're a retard."

A term used to describe a person who gives more than they expect; an unselfish person.
Her distinguishing trait was her munificence: she gives liberally to those less fortunate than herself. People always said she was a real Bill Gates when it came to charity.
