bill gates change the world...meh

he should start with the RROD issue

andyo133422d ago

He's actually a genius. As a school student hes the first person to actually come up with a solution to shlt teachers (trust me i know them, and theres nothing i can do to fix that i've tried) we got a teacher recently with an amazing CV in art, yet she can't teach jack shlt. Our best teacher is funny, energitic, can control the class well. He taught us religious study, and i've learnt a lot about religion and the bible makes much more sense.

what bill gates is suggesting would really help teachers out, its a win win situation.

microsoft how ever, fix rrod!

I like Bill,but he won't succeed.

That was a great presentation. I'm glad he set his sights on something that will make a real difference in the world.

Even during his MS days Bill Gates was the #1 philanthropist in the world and contributed the most money to charities of anyone. Also, in his will some obscenely high percentage of his money goes to charities when he dies. His kids are sort of getting the shaft. oh well, they'll have to earn it like everyone else.

Instead of dumping 7 billion dollars on an industry you don't really belong to, how about donating everything to hospitals, schools, colleges and universities? Hell, even a political cause would have been a lot better than the quality disaster you and your company chose.

the dude has so much money, he actually does donate ALOT of it to charity's and hospitals etc. and thats why i respect the man. but if i were him... just f****** retire for good already and enjoy your infinite amount of money! : )

Well it really looks like you have no idea what you're talking about gametheory. Bill Gates has donated computers to schools all over the world especially third world countries.

he don't exactly work at microsoft anymore, he still owns alot of MS (shares).. but he don't work there anymore..

but yeah.. Bill is a cool guy.. i may hate him for stealing ideas and saying it's his own.. but he's got a heart and does care about the world..

Unlike a$$'s like bush who spends Billion's of American tax payers money. But since Iraq has the potential to be the biggest oil supplier ahead of Saudi Arabia it was a good choice since Bush is guna get all the monies. Sooner or later its going to end up like World Euthanasia.

What I would like to ask to all of you who are bashing Bill for his philanthropy effort is this:

WTF are you personally doing to help the world? Seriously, I'd like to know... I'll even start... I've spent the past 7 years working in a company that works exclusively with non-profits to help them acquire more donors. I don't make a lot, and I work too hard most of the time, but at the end of the day I feel like I've done something good.

Now, tell me all you Bill Gate's bashers what are you doing... if it is something, then good for your, bash away... but if it is nothing, then get up off your ass and do something besides complaining about your RROD and how much you hate MS.

Sorry, I tend to get a little passionate about some things.

Hey the dude feels sorry for taking money now for himself, he is actually doing good things for the benefit of the world. Anyone see the conference where he let loose a jar of misquitoes into the crowd for his malaria benefit? Classic!
