Has anyone heard the radio drama Not From Space, from borgus.com? I always think of it when a headline like this appears in the news. If you enjoy bashing Bill Gates then check it out.

You guys think that his wife knows something evil about him, I don't think she cares about his evil or she agrees with it.  She just wants to get out of the marriage now the kids are grown.

I'm sure she knows all his dark evil secrets by now. I'm sure she held it over his head to not fight her over what she wants. Or ya, shes just as bad as him.  Hard to say from the outside.

But yes, regardless i bet she held off until the kids were long gone. Less stress for them.

Who cares? Whatever is bad for Bill Gates is good for everyone else. The amount of damage he did to the technology world, and is now attempting to do to the *entire* world, must be paid back to him.

And before anyone else says it, yes I have Gates Derangement Syndrome. The more that motherfucker suffers, the happier I am.

Since its for valid, and rational, reasons, not sure id call it derangement.

Been hearing some other reasons why the World's Biggest GoldDigger has decided to split up with Bill Hitler Gates (aside from the simple fact that he is the worst person in the history of the world)

1. It's well known that his will leaves only millions to the wife and kids.
If she takes half of his current net worth, they can all get far more than that. What an ultra fucking fucker he is, keeping the billions for himself and then fucking over his own family after he shuffles off.

2. She's tired of being married to a man who has "a 3.5 inch floppy".

breaking news: Melinda Gates succumbs to disseminated intravascular coagulation aka DIC. apparently a complication of the pfizer vaccine.  she's been DIC'ed over.

I guess now the 'big news' is they had an agreement he could spend time with his former GF.   Honesty, i dont care what consenting adults do. its their life, not mine.   Wish 'news' woudl stick to important things.

That is right, a least two women have said, "stick that micro soft floppy inside my hard drive slot."

Yeah, in the early 90s. Seems likely enough that he hasn't taken advantage of that agreement in a while.

The speculation in this room if of course a bunch of hyperbole, but one thing seems true, based on reports: Melinda is quite pissed at Bill over something, the family sides with her, and the divorce filing describes the marriage as "irredeemably broken."

I don't think it has anything to do with Bill's evil side.  Maybe she installed Linux on her PC... or worse yet, purchased an Ipad.

Or she has the final proof he stole code from CP/M, finally vindicating Gary to the unwashed masses and correcting a severe error in history.

Heh. I know Ballmer used to brag that he did not allow his family to buy or own Apple products.

So we know that Melinda hates Bill. Big deal, lots of people do. She's not very bright if it took her this long to figure it out. Hopefully she goes public with whatever it is that she got so pissed about. I'd like to know, so post the juicy details if you have them.

Look, the dude has a god complex. He can't be easy to be around for even short periods of time. I can't imagine having to live with him.

And now the two richest women in the nation got their money through divorce.

Im sure knew long ago, but the money kept her around.  Assuming its like a lot of 'big corprorates' he was never around, so she could pretty much live her own life.   Perhaps that has changed, and she cant deal with it.

Or something else he did recently pushed her over the edge.  We may never know.

She signed a non-disclosure agreement.

I doubt it. He's really kind of a geeky midlevel developer at heart, somehow he got rich because his BASIC interpreter really sold. So I doubt that he has contributed much to day-to-day business at Microsoft in a couple decades or more.

Something like that. He's also known to be a workaholic, and hyper-competitive, so when his mom got him the inside track at IBM it was really just nothing but business douchebaggery from that point on.

It would be interesting to imagine a world where IBM had managed to keep the hardware and software of the PC proprietary, whether they would still have a monopoly, or would a competing open standard emerge, would we have ended up in a world with lots of incompatible architectures, would Apple have supplanted them as the big ogre...

One thing is for sure: putting the guy who said "640K ought to be enough for anybody" (and later denied it) in charge of computing standards for decades, sure held the industry back for decades. We're still not completely free of that legacy but we're getting there.

As for Mrs. GoldDigger ... I searched for details but most of the hits point back to a poorly sourced TMZ story that says the whole family is furious at Bill, they all went to a private island without him to escape media scrutiny, and the decision to split was made in March.

(I supposed "poorly sourced" and "TMZ" is redundant.)
