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.

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.

Get a Bill Gates mug for your sister-in-law Beatrix.
CEO of the company Microsoft, a company that produces products for Personal Computers. Most notable products are the Windows Series Operating Systems (the current one as of June 2005 is Windows XP) and software and hardware for Personal Computers, as well a video game console called the X-Box.

Bill Gates is obscenely wealthy, and is the richest man in the world, as well as one of the most powerful. Due to negative media and dumbass rumors, Bill Gates has a bad image, even though he donates more to AIDs chairities than any other two celeberties combined. He also has several scholarship programs up, such as the Bill and Linda Gates Minority Scholorship.

The Operating System Windows is a good OS, if sometimes a little frustrating. It's easily accessable for the more mainstream user, however the OS is probably as smart as the user and is therefore called such (horribly thought out) insults as "gay" and "piece of junk!!11!!) It however has the largest amount of games on it with classics such as Half-Life, Unreal Tournament, and Fallout.
Bill Gates is a good man despite gossip and media.

Get a Bill Gates mug for your fish Larisa.
The richest man in the world who made his billions by creating the Windows OS, which gained popularity by having several useful, though sub-par, programs already installed.

Many often ridicule the Windows OS, although the same majority continue to use it.
Bill Gates is business man, not a programmer.

One of the richest guys in the world, a talent with a needle and soft dick.
One nite, Bill Gates slept with a whore at a five star hotel. And after having balled her, he asked, โ€œHow do you feel when you sleep with one of the richest men in the world like me?โ€.

The whore answered, โ€œmicro+softโ€.
