    Yes. That's a smart monkey. So easy to use, even a monkey can figure it out.

    Let me add, I agree that Microsoft is having some difficulty with public acceptance of Windows 8 and the improvements they proclaim. (all of which I like) (I will take an opposite view and state that I like it as it is)

    I have always had some curiosity as to why Bill Gates, even as a successful software engineer,
    could make 1 Billion dollars a week... it seems a bit much.

    Their profit margin is too high for them to be squeezing the public for subscriptions and expensive software.
    If they continue to be greedy, something bad could happen.

    I don't think he was earning quite that much (the estimates vary considerably), but for mere mortals, what he did earn was a king's ransom per week. However, he apparently intends to leave his US$58 billion to charity: Bill Gates pledges his $58 billion fortune to charity... rather than his children | Mail Online.

    He's not intending anything, I think he's already given away around $30 billion give or take a few billion.

    When you get in his (Bill Gates) playground, it is necessary to give the money to charity or else the tax man will take it.
    It's too much for a person to spend. He makes more than a million dollars a day ...

    He's not doing it for that reason, even when he was very young he already pledged to give most of his money away, he's the polar opposite of Steve Jobs.

    If he was just doing it to evade tax he could be laying back on a luxury liner instead of working in places like Africa.

    It's true... His, so called fortune, is what he might currently have, but he gives billions and billions away every year.

    Even 900,000 dollars for a computer programmer seems way out there.
