Hero of the Day: Bill Gates

Look, I'll be honest: like most people who hate the inferior technology of PCs, I've often wished unimaginable violence upon the head of Microsoft's recently-retired chairman, Bill Gates. But for today, at least, all is forgiven -- he's just donated $528 million to researchers in 19 countries to speed the development of a vaccine for H.I.V. This is the kind of commitment that can jump-start an entire field of study, and its potential benefit is really incalculable. Kudos, Gates...now how about making your new operating system, Vista, so it won't crash?
