So Gates is a sort of Slumdog Millionaire Oscar winner?
Ahh one thing Bill what about America?
If all it takes is a billion to win a prize, our current president should be getting many awards in the months ahead from all the muslim militant groups he is supporting with our tax dollars.
Windoze fools, Linux rules.
It is amazing what you can buy with $1,000,000,000.
Always sad to see rich liberals with so much money, too dumb to realize that government take over will deny them the ability to be charitable
Good for him for giving so much.
