Can you really call them profits if it's a nonprofit? ;)

Don't non-profits that make a "profit" just raise the salaries of the executives anyway?  Then there's no "profit" to worry about, it's just normal salary expense.

I just don't see the reason for Patents on Code that is "Open Source"  AND  "Non-Profit" unless it's used as an Evil Plot to destroy Open Source in some way.

History has already shown us that Microsoft is the AntiChrist and will try to enslave us all

I have never seen  "Charity" in any of their evil plots!

Tax-Free Non-Profit foundations and Charities by these people are normally used to hide weath, evade Taxes and generally have incredibly little to do with Charity

 i hate to break this to you bur Bill Gates is not the source of all evil, he does, you know, care about people. He even has his own charity.

He's not really an evil person.  He's just a businessman who engaged in illegal and immoral tactics to build and expand his company, destroying many other companies along the way.  Doesn't mean he can't also do some good in the world.
