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!

>From a corporate standpoint, comparing to 2006 donations as reviewed by 
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.
