Yes, I saw it. A very interesting insight into the man.
For years it's been The-Thing-To-Do to knock Bill Gates, and when you're the world's richest and most successful businessman, you're bound to attract an endless round of people who want to have a pop at you.
And of course, Gates is no angel. But I don't think he's the villain that he's so often made out to be, either. I certainly never understood why giving away an internet browser with his operating system apparently made him the Devil incarnate. Ten thousand businesses have used freebies to attract customers, and they haven't been accused of exploiting their position. Yes, he has wielded enormous business power, but he's done it my having the right product in the right place at the right time.
I've been as guilty as the next man of carping about Gates and his products, but the bottom line is that he has made computers accessible to hundreds of millions of people. What's more, having made billions of dollars in the process, he's now going to give much of it away to worthwhile causes.
As captains of commerce go, I think we could have seen a lot worse.
