You hit the motherlode this time, Frank. I'm sure he justifies it to himself by saying that if he didn't do it, someone else would, and he pats himself on the back for his charity work in Africa. I suspect, though, that there are more cases of AIDS caused in China by the government's secretive and repressive nature than Gates is preventing in Africa.

The only silver lining I can find is that if has this business in China, he'll probably monopolize it and thus provide a single node of change if the atmosphere should change in the future. Another benefit is that Microsoft produces such crappy software that the hackers may find ways around it.

Nice comment about Gates on slashdot.
