Bill Gates gives $100m to fight HIV, $421m to fight Linux
mini me + poo
Found during a search for something else...

"We do hate to rain on a high-profile corporate love-fest, but we have to point out that in addition to the much trumpeted $100 million Billg has donated to India's fight against HIV, he's funding the Microsoft jihad against Linux to the far more impressive tune of $421 million. That means that Linux is more than four times worse than AIDS to Billg..."

The falsehood there, of course, lies in the source of the money. The $400 million is Microshaft's, awarded according to the will of the directors as a group, while the $100 million is essentially his own money.

True, and that's acknowledged in the article, but given the size of his shareholding about $40m is his personal money too.

And I think that $421m is just in India - I wonder what the worldwide spend is.
