Microsoft co-founder talks a little of everything in his third Reddit AMA appearance
Guilty as charged -- we used the bit about drinking water made from human waste as a hook, and we'll do you a solid by not wasting any time getting right down to it. According to Bill Gates, the short answer is that it's "just like drinking any other kind of water, except that people get a little freaked out about it." He also has a sense of humor about it, which he proved by posting a photo in Reddit's Photoshop Battles sections.
Moving on, there's quite a bit more to digest from Bill Gates third Reddit AMA session, including his thoughts on HoloLens, life regrets, and more.
Microsoft co-founder makes his second Reddit AMA appearance in a year
It was almost a year ago to the day when Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates jumped into an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session on Reddit. There have been a lot of changes since then culminating in the promotion of Satya Nadella to Chief Executive Officer, who replaced outgoing chief Steve Ballmer. Bill Gates addressed that topic and more in another Reddit AMA today, and also revealed his "most expensive guilty pleasure purchase."
Microsoft founder Bill Gates won over the Reddit crowd by answering a plethora of questions.
Bill Gates is a rock star on so many levels. Yes, he co-founded Microsoft, built his net worth to tens of billions of dollars, and now spends his days doing philanthropy work through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, all of which are admirable in their own right. It would be easy for someone in his position to be an egotistical jerk who's disconnected from the public at large, but instead, this is the same guy who once did the Robot next to Jerry Seinfeld, made us crave churros in another Vista ad, and more recently (as in, yesterday) answered a boatload of questions on Reddit.

There's still time to jump into the AMA (Ask Me Anything) session if you have a burning question of your own, but you'll have to ask fast, as he's already been in there for about an hour.
