Monarchy + Monopoly = Knighthood

OK… couldn’t resist these two from Good Morning Silicon Valley on Bill’s Honorary Knighthood:

Said open source advocate Bruce Perens: "Being a convicted monopolist apparently doesn’t keep you from getting knighted. I suppose monarchy and monopoly go together afterall"


"I can picture someone standing near the queen whispering into her ear, "Do it; you’ll never get a chance like this again! For the love of god, woman, just lop his head off!" — One Slashdot poster fantasizes about Bill Gates’ knighthood ceremony taking an unexpected turn..

Interesting seeing USA Today reporting Open Source advocates…
