: First, Bill Gates built the company so he can by all means reap the

No, the workers built the Company, Gates did some of teh work, but for teh most part it was other peopel (Often otehr companies, like Stakker) that he stole from. I see to recall that DOS itself was bought dirt cheap and then flogged mercilessly...

:benefits, second, he didn't force his employees to work for him, nor

No, but capitalism requires that we may only work for someone else, we may only work to make capitalists profits. If they weren't robbed by gates they'd be robbed by someone else...

Yes, he pays them, but he pays them less than teh value of their work- he gets free labour off them, as all capitalists do. That is theft.

:theft try taking a look at any unions books. Like I said before Deathy, your just jealous that you can't come up with an idea or product etc.,

No, I'm not jealous, Ibwould never want to be as rich as Gates, or live like him....
