Bill Gates was the first programmer to call attention to piracy problem. In February 1976, he wrote an Open letter to Hobbyists, which was published, among other places, in the Homebrew Computer Club Newsletter, in which he lamented the widespread larceny of paper tape copies of his BASIC and called the hobbyists thieves. The letter had no effect whatever on the hobbyists except to anger them further at the $500 charged for his BASIC.
He now (1997) lives near Seattle, with his wife and new daughter, Jennifer Katherine Gates born on April 28, 1996 in a multimillion-dollar house that seems more like a convention center than a billionaire's retreat. Gates home is situated along the east bank of Lake Washington, just south of the 520 bridge - there it sits - a 40,000-square-foot waterfront home costing close to $50 million US. And NO, it's not true that the house has only 95 windows. Here is a picture of the home being built.
