I likes Bill Gates, really…

In his visit in Indonesia today, Bill Gates will discuss with President Bambang Yudoyono about how Microsoft will help Indonesia fight software counterfeit and will provide software education with affordable PC to school, teachers and students.

Ok, I have to admit that Microsoft’s image become less vicious when Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation works in most in education, poverty and health issues. While Microsoft’s face here is big company with greedy CEO but yes Bill softened the tones.

When he was the only man in the show (and being richest in the world) people tends to see with jealous and admires in same time. I did. When company getting bigger and bigger, Microsoft known for it’s power to ‘eat’ small company, acquiring under it’s belt, changed the names and whalaa… Oh not including close tight of it’s sources.

I do like Bill’s way to reduces pirated software using this approach rather than harshly filing lawsuit. You can not blindly put finger on people in Indonesia by doing such things. Software just so expensive for average $3900 a year with rank 146. While people struggle with petrol price, unemployment, and unstable law and enforcement, those piece of Windows XP still a luxury. Microsoft knew that they can not beat person who distributed pirates stuff but it has to be solve the core problem. Education, education and education.
Anyway, I lift my hat up to Bill.
