Bill does amazing charity work and all around seems like a good person.

I can't say I'm happy with how Microsoft has been going lately with ads and data collection in Windows 10. I am glad that they moved away from the Windows 8 UI though.

    Now that there's a moron in charge of Microsoft. I don't know who I dislike more... him or Chairman Pai of the FCC.

        He's the moron with the ads and data collection and Windows Phone on the Desktop UI. (It's brilliant on the phone!) There won't be a Microsoft before too long. Sad thing is, the next closest... more

                  I know my bank's app for a long time was just a web browser shortcut wrapped as an app. (Refused to install it). I would imagine many others would do more or less the same as a cheap way to get an... more
