Bill Gates and Cdn Gov't Team Up to Fight AIDS
« on: February 20, 2007, 10:14:48 AM »

Bill's got so much money he might as well use some of it this way.

From the article:
Quote
Billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates plans to work with the Canadian government to finance the testing of possible AIDS vaccines, CTV News reported yesterday.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper endured harsh criticism last summer when he decided not to attend the International AIDS Conference in Toronto.

Here's the story: Gates & Cdn Gov't Team Up

The dude is one of the most impressive philanthropists ever.  Honestly. 

I don't really care for Microsoft, but Bill Gates has done a tremendous amount of good for the world over the past decade or so and continues to help thousands of people.

But if he does that, he wouldn't have a reason for a follow-up OS after that one.

i would *gladly* give $100  PER YEAR for a NEW  OS version  IF* it were secure, and had some new features.


of course, I am not the typical user.

That's just it - the typical user wouldn't find much reason to upgrade every year or even every 2 years.  That is unless other big and wonderful changes were made as well, and those behind window$ don't seem efficient enough to do that.

Money isn't the cure for all but if used correctly perhaps it can help find a cure.
