So you may all be bowing down to Bill here but i ain't. I don't think he deserves it. hes built a business empire yes, making him quite probably the best businessman in the world, but how does this make him a "Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire"?
Through making his empire he has became the richest man on the face of the earth. i simply don't see how he deserves the title when all he has really been doing has been his job.
I respect Microsoft as a company and the software it develops has reached the top for half a reason! but i do not see how this entitles him to the title.
I do not agree with him being knighted as i do not believe he has earned the title for Britain, the Unix users group says it best...
