Gates has donated more money then we as a group will ever make. I can see why people would question why the goverment paid for his building but that complaint needs to be directed to the ones who gave him the money. Trickle down economics has nothing to do with getting money from the goverment.

Re: F... Bill Gates...

it sure does. the government gave him the money, and in return he created jobs. the basic principle of Reaganomics

Sorry you are total off on your Reaganomics. He liked the idea of goverment getting out of the way so business can grow but I don't recall him saying we will buy the stuff for you. It was more he said we will give tax breaks and incentives to help business grow.

Re: F... Bill Gates...

Microsoft pays a lot of money in taxes and makes a big contribution to our GDP. I suppose they could just move their business to another country and then we'd get nothing.

With that in mind, I don't have a problem with our government treating them "special".

Re: F... Bill Gates...

I will say this, F Microsoft. Just got the red ring of death on my 2nd xbox 360. This one lasted about a year and a half, same as my first one. I guess that's the shelf life for these pieces of crap. Good thing I bought a replacement plan.

Re: F... Bill Gates...

Yeah I'm not worried about it getting fixed, it's just annoying that they put out such a piece of junk system.

I heard the unit needs to be well-ventilated, almost to the point of impracticality. You sure it's well ventilated?
