Well...

I just get sick of all of these Gates-bashers who really have no reason to hate the person himself. I mean, look at all of these anti-Gates websites and so forth that have been spawned, and couple that with all of the jokes that are constantly being made about him on the radio, the 'net, TV and movies, and you might get to thinking that perhaps Bill Gates isn't that happy at all. Heck, I'd wager that he's pretty depressed...at least, once and a while.

The guy really has NOTHING. He is the brunt of every joke, the most hated person around, and we can't even begin to imagine what that is like. Sure, if you hate Microsoft products, you can bash them. Sure, you might even say that you hate the Microsoft company (though the minute you start hating people because they work for Microsoft is the minite I know this has gone too far), but why are so many people avidly against Bill Gates being ALIVE? I feel sorry for him. I don't think his wife loves him, I don't think his money, power or company makes him happy, I don't think he takes these jokes in good humour, and I don't think any of us should judge poor Bill without living a day in his shoes and being where he is right now. Hell, how many of us here have even met the guy? It's kind of hard for me to hold a grudge against someone who I have never met.

I know this is kinda off-topic from what you were saying, but it popped into my head. :P
