Yeah, Bill Gates isn't all bad, he also does a lot of charity work and provides funding for the WHO. Though, obviously one would hope he does that with billions of dollars to spend.
Also, in reply to OP: yeah, it's fantastic to see that schools are being funded, especially ones that are "academically rigorous" and still in the public sphere. I wonder though, is he providing them money forever? If not, then the public will have to pick them up on taxpayer money once the initial grant is used up. Which may lead to an eventual closing of the smaller schools, which would be unfortunate.

Pessimistic as I am though... (Thinks of plan for bill to discover brainy nerds in poor neighborhoods and teach them well so that he can hire them in the future and deny the competition of a pool of intelligence that otherwise may have gone undiscovered and unexploited).:D
Sure, monopolize the poor brainiacs by making sure they reach their full potential and have them ever grateful and loyal to you. :D

hey, let's not forget what many of us have to thank MrGates for most of all.
from Pool Boy:
"Thank you for making such crappy software because fixing it keeps me and many others employed."
