This is an interesting Daily Show interview with Bill Gates where he talks about the work of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, but I'm posting it because of a funny question that Jon Stewart asks him about a certain Microsoft competitor.

Oprah and Bill Gates showed up at a high school in San Diego yesterday, throwing the student body into a frenzy. The two billionaires were filming a segment for an upcoming episode of Oprah, about Bill and Melinda Gates' efforts to reform schools. In 2003, the Gates Foundation gave $11 million to the San Diego Unified School District, with orders to reform three high schools. The district used the money to create six smaller schools with specialties such as business, international studies, media and science. Each school has about 400 students, compared to the 1,400 that were previously in each large school. Oprah and Bill kept the visit on the down-low, in order to keep the media-types away. They filmed segments with nine students.
