Regardless of his actual intellect, he didn't have any higher education (as the state defines it) when he created Windows (he may have a degree or multiple degrees now, I'm not sure). As for him being an icon of American business, there is no denying it.

And, even if you were to insist that he is a bad example, it does nothing to invalidate the point of the post as a whole.

My argument stands.

Plato once said there was a perfect form of everything -- a perfect dog, a perfect chair, a perfect man -- and that everything was a shadow of this one perfect form. Now, if we follow this line of thinking, that means that somewhere in the universe there is the perfect form of the perfect, absolute and complete idiot, and he left here an hour ago.
