According to GeckoandFly, the software genius – Bill Gates earns around an astounding US$250 a second. That’s a lot! Imagine you’re sleeping and when you wake up the next day, millions of dollars have been credited into your pockets. For the past few days, I was talking to my friend and also classmate about Bill Gates making so much and wondering if a person could earn $1,000 per second – that’s equivalent to a decent laptop.

Letter is from OBAMA to Mr. Bill Gates of Microsoft
Subject: Problems with my new computer

Dear Mr. Bill Gates,

We have bought a computer for our home and we have found some
problems,  which I want to bring to your notice.

1. There is a button ‘start‘ but there is no ‘stop‘ button. We request you to check this.

2. We find there is ‘Run‘ in the menu. One of my friends clicked ‘run’   he ran up to Amritsar ! So, we request you to change that to ‘sit‘, so that we can click that by sitting.

3. One doubt is whether any ‘re-scooter‘ is available in system? I
find    only ‘re-cycle‘, but I own a scooter at my home.

4. There is ‘Find‘ button but it is not working properly. My wife lost the door key and we tried a lot trace the key with this ‘ find’
button,  but was unable to trace. Please rectify this problem.

5. My child learnt ‘Microsoft word‘ now he wants to learn ‘Microsoft sentence‘, so when you will provide that?

6. I brought computer, CPU, mouse and keyboard, but there is only one icon which shows ‘MY Computer’: when you will provide the remaining items?

7. It is surprising that windows says ‘MY Pictures’ but there is not even a single photo of mine. So when will you keep my photo in that.

8. There is ‘MICROSOFT OFFICE’ what about ‘MICROSOFT HOME’ since I use the PC at home only.

9. You provided ‘My Recent Documents’. When you will provide ‘My Past Documents’?

10. You provide ‘My Network Places’. For God shake please do not
provide ‘My Secret Places’. I do not want to let my wife know where I go after my  office hours.

Regards,

OBAMA

Last one from me to Mr Bill Gates :

Sir, how is it that your name is Gates but u are selling WINDOWS?
