They took risks too.

Most entrepreneurs took risks to get where they are.

That is, except for bill gates. What he didn't get handed to him, he stole.

Simple formula:

The richer you are the more corrupt you are.

I'm not sure what Gates did wrong.  He didn't kill anyone.  He extracted a few more dollars out of a lot of people by creating a pseudo-monopoly on a very specific product - desktop operating system software.  It was hardly oil or rail, it was just a growth industry at the time.  It was all a rather smart move.  Other companies kill a dozen people and displace thousands to mine a billion dollars worth of tantalum or grow a billion dollars worth of bananas.  What Gates did was just plain smart and ethical and happened to be a rather good business move too.
