    not that i'm a MS fan, im not by any means, but a similar thing happened to Steve Jobs during his keynote speech, which was really good apart from the technical problem, as they had music and the president of Sony and stuff!

    Erm, I'm not sure about that. But they do have a Mac Software department - which does of course have Macs.

    Me too. I think that one of the 1st times that I've properly seen Bill Gates TBH. He never seems to be pictures ANYWHERE AT ALL!!! You'd have thought that EVERYONE would recognise the richest man in the world? I was begining to think he didn't exist!

    He might be rich, but he's not the richest. What happens in the vid, not working on my computer.
    To err is human. To really foul things up ... you need a computer.

    I thought he was the richest.... Who is then?

    In the video, Bill had to do something with a presentation using a remote control. Basically it didn't work. It shows this about 5 times. The bateries were probably dead.

    The presenter makes a joke:
    "who runs microso.... oh yeah"

    That's just sod's law to be honest It was my thinking some guy called King Fahd was the richest guy in the world, old Gatsey being the youngest billionaire ever, at least he was, I don't think he holds that title any more. Although people say the guy who founded IKEA is the daddy.

    Pretty sure Gates is still the richest to be honest, by far.

    Not sure how up-to-date this list is, but its deffo from the last couple of years.

    1: Gates, William H III
    2: Buffett, Warren E
    3: Albrecht, Karl & Theo
    4: Allen, Paul G
    5: Ellison, Lawrence J
    6: Walton, Jim C
    7: Walton, John T
    8: Walton, Alice L
    9: Walton, S Robson
    10: Walton, Helen R

    Those Waltons must be the richest family by a mile.
