Some computer users might loath Microsoft chairman Bill Gates for his past anti competitive spats and the carnival of security bugs in his software, as a philanthropist Gates is doing significantly better.
Enough so for Time magazine to name Gates as one of its "people of the year", together with his wife Melinda Gates and U2 singer Bono.
While the list in the past has laurelled great leaders including Martin Luther King and Lech Walesa, inclusion isn't by definition a big honour. The publication in the past has named noted mass murders including Joseph Stalin (twice) and Adolf Hitler to its annual list.
More remarkably, Gates never before has made the Time list. Intel founder Andy Grove (1997) and Amazon's Jeff Bezos (1999) piped Gates. Even the computer (1982) succeeded where Gates failed as a computer geek.
But Gates has put his Microsoft billions to some very good use, saving more than 700,000 through vaccination programmes. You might disagree with Gates' business practices, there is little you can say about his charitable side.
If the thought Gates using his ill gained fortune this way makes you fume, just view this as a form of wealth distribution. At least Gates is using his funds more efficiently than most governments do.
