Queen to give knighthood to Bill Gates
OwlWhacker writes ""The recommendation that he receive the honour was made by the Chancellor, Gordon Brown." I wonder if this is a deal in which the UK could get greater discount from Microsoft software? Perhaps Gordon Brown was sucked in by Bill Gates' 'generous' and 'selfless' nature? How can a man that has been proved to hold back competition be honored for giving away the millions of dollars that he has sucked mercilessly - and still sucks - from everybody (including poorly funded schools)?"
