No offence right, but "Contribution to Enterprise"? Contributions such as

- Locking out competitors
- Making a "user friendly" version of windows which actually means "you'll use it the way MS wants you to"
- Charging a fortune for products when others can do it for cheaper

you know, the list goes on but very few merit a Knighthood. Makes me ashamed to be British sometimes it really does.

What I don't understand is why our queen is knighting him when he probably didn't even think about britain when he was thinking up Windows.

Nah, that's fair enough. He was thinking about annoying people on a global scale

I don't see why you are dissing him. I would bet that most people here don't use DOS or something other than windows for an operating system. I say if it simplifies things, more power to it.

Anyways, I MEAN WTF WAS THE QUEEN THINKING? Maybe a little under the table action going on around there

Yeah you can be a non-British Knight - you just are "honoury" (correct spelling escapes me).

Contribution to Enterprise

AKA, teaching the world how to take over the world ... legally

Yeah, you have to be British to be a 'sir'. Thank God. Imagine if they made a Lord Bill.

King Arthur would be spinning in his grave.... They should re-establish the criteria of having to vanquish a dragon to make you eligible for knighthood....
