Well I understand how it can be annoying you a bit, but the people have the right to mourn for him.
As for Bill Gates, yeah I thought about using someone more POPULAR to reference to.
But in all honesty, I have nothing against Bill Gates. He made Microsoft, he became very successful, he went through the trouble of making contracts with major computer manufacturers to have Windows on their computers. Now he just sits back and lets his excecutives do the work. It's not his fault that his OS sucks, he just owns it.
