Bill Gates - a computer in every home and on every desk

Thank you Bill for that bootlegged Windows 95 OS on which I learned to make mistakes.
Thank you for Windows 98 on which I grew up.
Thank you for Win xp on my office PC. It did not even crash once the last year.
Thank you for Office 97. And thank you for office 2007.
Thank you for Regedit. Thank you for "format c:"

And thank you for DX8.1 on which my son Sriduth discovered his first games.

Thank you for making computers ... well, usable, playable, tweakable, and kickable.
