    I've always had a horrible image of him but I'm a bit ahead of the curve on these things. I'm curious of what others think, with the CV issues front and center and regardless of what you believe on CV, what are your thoughts on the new villian. He's slipped up a couple of times and said things like vaccinations can help reduce the planet population by x amount and other scary things. There is good evidence of him being a stooge for the rockefellers and other elite families that are involved some shady things. Any change in mind since you bought your first copy of Windows 95 on Dear Leader ? , now more like Dr Death.

    I always recall the line : "Greatest business mistake in the history of commerce: IBM trusting Bill Gates!"

    There is also much from early days: Seattle Computer Co and QDOS which would cause me to question his bona fides.

    What about licence agreements consisting of forty pages of gobbledegook, deliberately designed to get users to sign without reading.

    Anyone who has been party to the evolution of Linux will probably find reasons to not trust the man.

    So I think there is much factual material to make me cautious with respect to Bill Gates.

    BUT, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, lets not have our site turned into yet another vehicle for spreading of conspiracy theory crap. There is sufficient already on the web.

    Considering I'm posting this message from a desktop computer that is more than 15 years old and is running Windows XP, and recognizing Bill Gates was still with Microsoft at the time of XP, I have to admit that I'm rather grateful for the guy in the context of Windows XP, that is. Sure, I'm skeptical of his association with -- and financing of -- The World Health Organization, however I'm also skeptical about many other people, organizations, and institutions. Nevertheless, I don't think it'd be fair or me to be rabidly anti-Gates simply because of his apparent global aspirations, especially since I am typing this message from an operating system that he was likely invovled in creating.

    I noticed this item from a news article a few days ago. Interesting.

    Jeff Bezos would qualify for global aspirations, Bill is more like global domination. I don't think your characterization of Bill fits. He does have few deaths under his belt and many more injuries, he's a major force behind the troubling things in the world today, vaccinations, a tracked and surveilled world, a disturbing bio security agenda, these are a few of the things Bill supports or actively pushes. These things are like anti poverty campaigns, they sounds nice at first but in the long run they do more harm than good and are usually used to consolidate power.

    It is wise to distrust folks who you do not personally know.

    The saying, "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer" is not a bad one. With an enemy, you know their position quite well, and therefore you can distrust them without explanation.
