...their vision and dreams real!
Bill Gates
Bill Gates is the co-founder, chairman, and chief software architect of Microsoft Corporation, the world's largest software company as of April 2006. He is also the founder of Corbis, a digital image archiving company. Forbes international rich list has ranked him as the world's richest person for the last twelve straight years. In 1999, Gates' wealth briefly surpassed $100 billion, making him the world's first centibillionaire. When family wealth is considered, his family ranks second behind the Walton family.

Gates is one of the best-known entrepreneurs of the personal computer revolution. He is widely respected for his intelligence, foresight, and ambition. He is also widely criticized as having built Microsoft's business through unfair, illegal, or anticompetitive business practices. Government authorities in several countries have found some of Microsoft's practices illegal, as in United States v. Microsoft.

Since amassing his fortune, Gates has pursued a number of philanthropic endeavors, donating large amounts of money (about 51% of his total fortune) to various charitable organizations and scientific research programs through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, founded in 2000. He, his wife Melinda and U2's lead singer Bono were collectively named by Time as the 2005 Persons of the Year. That same year he was given an honorary Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II. In 2006, Gates Foundation was awarded the Premio Principe de Asturias en Cooperacion Internacional.

I just love it when people say I can't do something. There's nothing that makes me feel better, because all my life people have said I wasn't going to make it.
