Yeah, Gates was just being kind... not trying to avoid anti-trust laws or getting Apple to use Office products, which in turn helped defeat a competitor to Office.
Microsoft to invest $150 million in Apple - CNET News
"Observers say the deal, while a shot in the arm for Apple, also may help Microsoft by keeping antitrust charges at bay. Apple represents one of the only alternatives to Microsoft's Windows and the Microsoft-Intel hegemony.
More than 8 million customers use Microsoft Office for the Macintosh, making it "the single largest revenue Mac application," Maffei said. "It's a very important application for Apple and its customers, and it's a very important application for Microsoft and its customers. It's a several-hundred-million-dollar item."
Gates didn't become a multi-billionaire by giving away money unnecessarily.

You also don't seem to realize that the high price of macs make them IDEAL targets. It's beyond hysterical to be under the impression that every single malware developer in the world hasn't tried to prove it wrong. The bottom line is there will never be a self propagating virus/malware for OSX. Any possible infection vector will rely on you, the user, to type in your password, which if you do that is your own fault. You will never see a drive by download with OSX.
I mean even Google has gotten lazy with security when it comes to droids, Ice Cream Sandwich is the first droid build to include ASLR

Being in a position of great wealth you are privy to certain information (like how others acquire their wealth). Including what organizations are BS and redirect your donated money so people "at the top" can live like kings. Don't believe the hype, your money is not going where you intend it to go. Not saying this is his reason; me personally, I would kill myself before I let a lazy crooked person get rich off of my blood sweat and tears.
