Interesting facts about Bill Gates

Bill Gates is one of the most important men in the world of technology, but he’s also a known philanthropist, an inventor and a very rich man. In fact, Bill is so rich that Forbes magazine declared him the richest person in the world for over 10 years (1995 to 2009). During his career at Microsoft, Gates developed products that changed the world. I’m talking about notorious products like Windows, Office and Xbox. But there are few facts that you may not know about him, facts that could give you a new perspective on his character, his life and his legacy. I have to admit, I had to think for a while on which category this article fits better. Is it science or technology? Just enjoy the following images…

Martha you may want to do some proofreading next time.   Your grammar is, well, pretty bad.   Other than that decent story.

@santiagodraco Oh please, don't be that guy. Also, nobody double spaces after periods when they are just leaving comments on a video, that's absurd. You're trying way too hard.

After a few hundred million, money means nothing. My impression of Bill Gates is unchanged too. After decades of greed and manipulation, his philanthropy seems equally self-serving.

@bob_6575467 WTF?  8,000,000 children not dead of childhood illness and you are holding on from when Microsoft charged extra for MSOffice over MSWorks?

My impression of Mr. Gates stands justified. I'd like to extend an offer to buy him lunch!
