Thanks for clearing all that up for me, Arielflies! I guess I should have looked it up before sticking my foot in my mouth. I don't follow these technology billionaires but have to assume that Gates is more public about his charitable work and I've only seen these couple examples of Ellison's great wealth. I'm sure, from reading your post, that I probably depend on Oracle in ways not so obvious to me as Microsoft, but every time I fire up my laptop, iPad, iPhone I should tip my hat to those thousands of people who work to make this magic for me. I fact my son who invited me up to the roof for that amazing day has an important job at Verizon (not the cell phone side of company) and when I ask him what he does my eyes glass over and I really do not understand.
