Bill Gates to be Knighted
Posted on: 01/26/2004 02:14 PM

I noticed by way of the HardOCP that Bill Gates is to be knighted by the Queen of England.
Bill Gates, the Microsoft founder and the world's wealthiest man, is to receive an honorary knighthood for "services to global enterprise".

The recommendation that he receive the honour was made by the Chancellor, Gordon Brown. Buckingham Palace is expected to announce it tomorrow, when Mr Gates will speak at a conference on "Advancing Enterprise" organised by Mr Brown.
Sir William Gates? Discuss.
