Google makes about $1.5B profit per quarter. $20M of charity? I don't
like MS any more than most, but Gates Foundation has received $20B from
Bill and Warren over the past 3 years. My hat goes off to those guys!

Google's $20M on $6B profit for 2009 is miniscule and basically just PR
hype. Wanna compare Bill to Larry & Sergey? Your comment on "wish
Redmond would copy this action" is libelous and I certainly hope that
major philanthropists do not "copy" Google's joke of a donation.
