Sir. Bill Gates?

Caught this story on Slashdot – The Slashdot story cites a Telegraph stories that claims that Bill Gates is going to be knighted by the Queen of England for “services to the global enterprise”.

As you can imagine, the response from the Slashdot audience is pretty predictable. Whatever you think of Bill Gates and Microsoft, you have to admit that Bill has done a lot of wonderful charity work giving billions of dollars to help the sick and improvised all over the world via. the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and William H. Gates Foundation. Cheers to Bill for his philanthropic activities and I wish more people were as generous as Bill Gates. We now return to our regularly scheduled program of Java, J2EE and Microsoft bashing.
