Well, I could give you a few reasons why I don't (It takes some more to make 
me hate somebody) like Bill Gates. 
There are some things that jump immediately spring to my mind,
for example the Contracts ("Knebelvertraege") he did with hardware 
distributors, that said If you distribute other software with your PC's you 
may not sell M$ anymore, and thus  unfairly subduing competition.

Another one is his initial DOS, which he just bougth and reselled.
You may of course say that's just buissness, and you are probably right, but 
I still don't like that.

He has done many things, he did just to archive/hold a position of Power.
I know that I get into the realms of Philosophy here, but I don't like 
(fear?!) people who are ambitious for Power, because Power is always about 
treating other people as inferior, and I truly belive in the equality.

So much for my OT baballing, just a few sentences said, on a topic, one could 
fill books with.
