That old adage about 'My Enemy's Enemy Is My Friend" might have something in it. I have never had much respect for Bill Gates before but if this is what we can expect from post-Microsoft Bill then hats off to him - who else in the word can literally afford to say what he likes to anyone:

    I agree with you Andrew, I have never had much respect for Bill Gates. There has been several times he has opened his mouth before engaging his brain. He could have been more tactful, and making fun of someone's hair is hitting below the belt.
    Look at his legacy, covering the earth with a "swiss cheese" OS. But, he has created a lot of jobs in the security, and virus protection sector.
