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.

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'.

"Bill Gates' house also features an estate-wide server system running Windows and heated floors and driveways. Guests wear pins that upon entrance of a room automatically adjust temperature, music, and lighting based on the guest's preferences, according to the narration in the virtual tour below."

Gates and his wife Melinda are very fond of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, and they have inscribed in the library a sentence from the last page of the novel:

"He had come a long way to this blue lawn, and his dream must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it."
