Yep.  When you work for Gates, you have to take a 20% pay cut, you get
a few thousand shares of Microsoft stock options (not stock, just
options), usually the hiring is done when the stock price is high,
which means the options are worthless.  Of course, Billy who is
actually sitting on REAL stock, get's big huge fat dividends taxed at
20%, while the poor slobs working for him have to pay marginal rates of
 50% on their bonuses and capital gains.

Of course, before you can even TALK to anyone at Microsoft about a job,
you have to sign nondiscosure agreements and agree to give up something
even more valuable than your first born child - the rights to anything
discussed during the interview process..

Of course, if you do go to work for Microsoft, you will get credit for
your work, in an "easter egg" hidden deep within the bowels of
applications like Excel.  Only God and Bill Gates know what else might
be hidden in that code.  And Bill Gates isn't talking.
:-D ;-)
