PC Gaming probley wouldn't be as popular if Bill Gates didn't do what he did. Yay for Flight/Train Simulator. :D And of course, Windows XP.
If Bill Gates didn't exist, we would probably all be using Unix based systems.
If Bill Gates didn't exist, normal people wouldn't be using computers.

Bill was kind of a small nerdy fellow who did good for the company. I think he put Steve in charge for a last laugh before he leaves. Seriously Steve Ballmer is a nut job.
[QUOTE=DaveP]Bill Gates is a man I can respect.

A billionaire to be proud of.[/QUOTE] I really didn't know what else to say so ^this. Also bring on the avatars, it's bound to happen sooner or later. R.I.P. Bill Gates I thought you'd be providing bad customer service forever.

What's with all the Bill hate? All he did was create a very succesful psuedo-monapoly that fuels our gaming needs He's rather awesome

[QUOTE=sboyy;10545139] This was quite the shock for me, I thought he would be co-Chairman for Microsoft for at least another few years, but I suppose he's got enough money to last him for quite a while and to give to charity.:v:[/QUOTE] he's got enough money to last the american population for a while
