|People are so mean to Bill Gates. He does something pretty cool, and they just say it's "an unusual display of humility". Why can't it be a nice display of humility? Even pleasantly surprising would be appropriate. Unusual, though, is just unnecessarily snippy. Not that I wouldn't normally applaud such behaviour, but in popularity-world Gates is the underdog - he doesn't need any more kicking.
|Garn! Bill Gates is 3\/1L. Everybody should eat his lower intestines! For breakfast!|
|It's an "unusual display of humility" because that's exactly what it is, unusual. Bill Gates, and Microsoft, have never gone out of their way to appear as if they have any care or concern for their users. It's gone way past "pleasantly surprising" to the point that some people feel as if they're due an apology from Gates.|
