Bill Gates, co-founder and chairman of Microsoft, is perhaps the most famous name in the PC (personal computer) revolution. This has helped make Gates one of the wealthiest men in the world, having been ranked the richest person on earth for the last thirteen consecutive years according to FORBES magazine. Gates has used this vast wealth to pursue a number of philanthropic endeavors, donating large amounts of money to various charitable organizations and scientific research programs through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
