The ingenious moves performed by the astute businessman Bill Gates have led
his company into being the epitome of the era of informatics. The Windows operational
system (in other words the heart of the computer) is installed in 95% of the
PCs all over the world. It is not the best, but it has been perfectly promoted.
From that point on, Gates has included in his portfolio hundreds of companies
specializing in all the fields of informatics. He was a bit late to enter the
Internet market but with the ready money already stagnating in the cash desks
of his company he started buying out companies and today he is the “master” in
the field. Of course massive buy-outs and the offensive politics he has been
practicing have brought on fears about his monopolizing the whole lot of the
economy of informatics. He has been brought to court facing charges for monopolizing
practices, a fact that might cost him the breaking up of his company’s
activities. Anyway, his practices for the past few years have neither been
that virtuous nor consistent with the law. He has fulsomely made use his monopolistic
place in the operational systems sector to promote his own software programs
trampling over numerous competitors of his.
Yet, despite his legendary wealth, Bill Gates still remains a simple man.
The only way he shows off his riches is through charity, especially when subsiding
schools and libraries to develop their systems of informatics. He walks around
dressed in ordinary attire, he loves bridge and fast food restaurants. If someone
visits the McDonalds in Seattle (the location of his company’s headquarters)
may have dinner with him (naturally at neighboring tables). Those who have
been studying his wealth (now there are lots o them in the Internet, occupying
themselves with all the things the informatics tycoon is capable of doing with
the help of his mythical riches) have estimated that his money will suffice
to buy all the meals consumed at the 24,800 McDonalds fast food restaurants
for the next three years. And to extend on that, if the freckle-nosed croesus
wished to pose as Scrooge Mc Duck, liquidating his assets into one-dollar bills
like the famous Walt Disney duck did and hide all these bank notes in the mattress
of his bed, then he would have to have a bed soaring at a 26 km height! If
he arrayed his dollars in a one-dollar bill line, the length of his wealth
would be enough to walk him all the way to the moon and back, 99 times.
