A shrewd businessman who was smart enough to jump on the gravy train when IBM decided to start producing personal computers. Gates was able to bind IBM to an operating system which he did not even own at the time he was first dealing with IBM, and because of the international clout of IBM, everyone started using the IBM "AT" (Advanced Technology) machines and so pretty soon the IBM operating system began to be the world standard.
At this point, the world benefitted because prior to IBM, there were many different operating systems, but Bill Gates was not satisfied to be known as the unifier of operating systems and instead he greedily attempted to make sure that computer programs would only run, or would run best on his own "operating system" which has "secret code" which can easily disable programs produced by others.
Bill Gates' company was finally sued for monopolistic practices by the USA, and in the first lawsuit Microsoft agreed that the definition of an operating system is the system in the computer which connects the motherboard chip of the computer to the peripherals of the computer, such as the keyboard, monitor, drives, etc. so that the main board and the peripherals are interconnected as of course they must be.
Gates consented to the definition of an "operating system" in the decree but then illegally was able to contemptuously extend the "operating system" to include other things such as Web Browsers and other desktop programs such as "Office" so that he gained even more control over the desktop and the Web Browsers, which he had not at first recognized as being potentially a big market. By contemptuously but de facto extending the definition of the operating system in this manner he was able to extend his control over the pc even more. In this illegal way he was also able to also profit from programs produced by his own company which would only run on his extended system with its secret code. His criminal extension of his monopoly into the internet and the desktop is not fooling the European powers who have ordered Gates to produce a basic, truly defined operating system upon which any other computer program may run without his interference.
Gates pretends in a showy way to be a philanthropist but he only gives about .01% of his obscene wealth to liberal charities, while in truth his criminal greed has kept computing power out of the hands of the common man because his chicanery has led him to expect and receive a big payment out of every single pc sold, so that if he keeps getting his way, none of the world's common men and women will ever be able to afford a pc of their own. His greed and avariciousness, because of these illegal, monopolistic and lawless practices, is beyond compare. That he is up to his same old tricks is shown by how he has just recently used his expanded system to keep the company Google from running its universally respected search engine on his latest system so that users can only use his own search engine on his system. What a surprise!
The USA should begin condemnation actions against his company so that computing power can truly be released to all the people. In the condemnation trial, we would hope the jury would give him and his shareholders ZERO RECOVERY because of the fact that the current position the company is in was acquired by illegal and unethical practices, and he should be jailed for contempt of court regarding the first anti-trust action where he himself agreed to the limited definition of an operating system.
When people's good deeds are counted up on judgment day, Bill Gates is sure to be one of the many that are denied entry into the renewed Garden of Eden, and he will surely be burned to a crisp because of his selfishness, lies and greed.
Bill: how much do you think your uncounted earthly riches will help you at that time? You are advised to make a public dedication of your system before it is too late.
It's no use for us to try to develope that new program you are thinking about because you will first have to go to Bill Gates to make sure he will let us run the program on his desktop; and chances are when we see him that he will steal our idea just like he did with the Apple Macintosh icon oriented command line system and all those others.

An asshole that copied apple computers and got rich off it, He makes shitty software that crashes every half hour, it gets infected with spyware and viruses and is "dll hell". He still copies apple till this day. Vista took him 5 years to make because every year apple made something new and he had to find out a way to put it into vista... If u don't believe me, go to youtube and type in 'apple vs vista' or 'apple adds'
Oh crap my windows has crashed again.. Get a mac!

What do air con's and computers have in common? They both stop working when you open windows.

Lets Throw an apple pie at Bill Gates.

A really smart guy, one of the founders of Microsoft. we should thank him for Windows and almost everything that starts Microsoft, like Exel, Word and stuff, great programes filled with all sorts of usefull stuff we don't use because we don't know how. Also, he's very reach and donates huge (huge like in "to big to even dream about") amounts to charity. Is hated because windows has errors and he has money.
Bill Gates started Microsoft. From Microsoft comes Windows and Microsoft Games. Bill Gates is good.

A man who is both God and Satan, simultaneously.
All hail Bill Gates! On second thought, don't.

Bill Gates is the best. He is the founder of the world's largest software company, named Microsoft. Without all the amount of hard work and effort Bill Gates and Microsoft have done, the world would be a totally different place today. We would not have the amount of techological devices we have today. I thank Bill Gates and Microsoft for everything him self and the company has done. They have really revolutionaized the computer industry, and made life easier for everyone.
Microsoft continues to lead the way in software and hardware technologies. If other companies such as Sony or Logitech did not compete with Microsoft, we prbably would not have new game consoles, and Force Feedback, or game devices that we have to day. Again thank you Bill Gates, and Thank you Microsoft.

another way of saying, "what's up?". derived from the german phase for what's up: "wie ghets".

unlike "that's so fetch!", "bill gates?" will totally happen.
"hey tommy! bill gates?"

A man who is envied by every single person on the planet. (Especially Europeans)many compare him to Hitler, he is also the butt of many jokes but if it were not for him we would all be stuck using Peace of shit Macs or other operating systems that are as useless as a $2 bill (Cough Cough Linux..)
Stupid Asshole: "Bill gates has his mind set on world domination"

Me: " Your just a jealous SOB, you just envy him because hes the richest man in the world also an American icon .. to bad your shit country doesn't have one"
