See? THIS is why I admire Bill Gates

Users of Microsoft products might curse and revile Bill Gates the gazillionaire (I admit I've done some cursing myself, and my husband does it fervently and often... heheheh), but I still think he's worth a bit of admiration for the unassuming life he leads. I dont mean that he lives frugally all the time, but whatever gazillionaire-type excesses he and his family get up to are kept private. They're not splashed out in every two-bit magazine! Admittedly, some eagle-eyed person with a camera spotted Bill Gates, but that's hardly as if he invited hordes of paparazzi to gawk at him just so he could be in the news :)

Yes, its very touching to see him out in the open with his children, splashing about and having fun. Arnold Ham'n'egger he ain't but then its all in the mind, isn't it? ;) Ravi

Yeah, I thought I'd be nice and not mention his little pot belly... but since you brought up the topic, it's open season! Arnie Ham'n'Egger (LURRRVE that!) he isnt :) Bill Gates' strong point is the brains department, not brawn...

*kadi alert* :)
But Bill Gates is extremely particular when it comes to the food section.
He wouldn't be caught dead w/ a Big Mac or an apple.
