While it's great that it helps the people, I don't think it's as altruistic as you think. My opinion is that it's PR. Hell, the foundation came about right as the anti-trust came into full swing. To me, that's spin and it's in their own best interest. Sure it's mostly tax deductable too.
The biggest thing about Gates that bothers me is that he is one of the few people on earth who could actually make a big difference and all he cares about is fiscal domination. Think about it, our goverment is unfortunately money driven. Well he has plenty of that. I don't think there's too much he wouldn't be able to accomplish.
Whatever, I would think at some point you would just think... I've got enough, time for other things.
This pretty much sums up my feelings.
