Coffee Cup

I never thought I'd be praising Bill Gates, being a Mac person and all and not being at all fond of Microsoft, but it's impossible for me not to in the wake of a recent interview Gates did with CNN's chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

It's the green heron (Butorides virescens), a denizen of North and Central American wetlands and an accomplished fisherman. They are sit-and-wait predators, perching motionless on the bank or on a tree, ready to grab a fish by striking out with their amazingly long necks.



I'm sure Gates, who spends billions of dollars on world health problems and campaigning on policy issues (such as opposing cuts on inheritance tax) is glad that a Mac user has praised him.

I'm being facetious, of course. But one has to wonder why Steve Jobs is only in the news when he's promoting his hardware or Apple's in the spotlight for their terrible stance on consumer rights.

Well Jobs did make the news for using his money to get in the front of the line for a liver transplant. So Bill Gates isn't the only rich person providing medical care, Jobs helped out more billionaires with health problems than Gates has.

I think Gates became bored with his business - and the way he conducted his business, one can see why. Jobs still does his business in a much more interesting way, relying on innovation and imagination in ways that Microsoft just hasn't done as much of for quite a while.

None of this takes anything away from what Gates is doing - absolutely outstanding. I hope everything Gates is doing now is a huge success.

Yep, just can't bring myself to hate this lovable nerd. Jobs on the other hand is a giant douche.

I say this as a Windows user, and an iPod owner. I also have a black friend and a gay friend.
