No listing is complete when not listing the world's richest people and of course the people at Forbes have done it. And of course Bill Gates is the most richest in the world - his worth is about $46.6 billion. That's some chips and dimes. Second wealthiest is Warren Buffet, just $4 billion less than Gates. At the sixth place Alice and Helen Walton resides, the wealthiest women on earth but wee... only $20 billion in the pocket. At 13th the Swedish furniture-gigant Ingvar Kamprad is putting down his feet and the fun in this is that he might be the most stingy person alive. He lives as he did when he started IKEA.
And both Paul Allen and Steve Ballmer is on the top twenty which truly shows the impact that computers have had recently and the fact that Microsoft tries to become The Operative of the Universe.
