*4th* richest man in the world??? WOW. Yet he still walks his talk (except of course he moved to Switzerland rather than pay taxes in Sweden, or maybe I'm being jaded? :)).

Gotta love the company ethic, though...

I think he is very good when it comes to motivating his employees, and image making. He obviously knows smart business practices. But don't you just wonder what goes on when noone is looking?

LOL you mean like why he lives in Switzerland rather than Sweden, for example? :)

Yeah, yeah, that's definite. But the co. walks a great deal more talk than other cos. and did it before it was fashionable. For that I give them all credit.

That is true. But, I wonder how big of a house he lives in and what he's doing with his fortune. Hopefully not socking it away for a rainy day. Gotta admire Gates just a little.

...but do I have to admire *Microsoft*??? :)

Interesting question. I'd like to know what he's doing with his $$$$$$$$$$$.

This is what Gates does with his money.

No, I meant Ingvar. I'm aware of what Gates does.

Sorry flyleft, I misunderstood you.

RE: On the lighter side, inspiration from Ingvar :)

OK, flyleft, I know I posted a rather terse comment about this person (don't actually know about him). I have, however, tried to find some info about his personal life and curiously not much available. Do you know anything to enlighten us?
