the richest man in the world

Who is the richest man in the world?

In a recent estimate done by Forbes' Magazine among the world's richest, William Henry Gates III or Bill Gates still ranks no. 1 in the World's Billionaires' list with net worth near $56 billion.

Gates was born on October 28, 1955 (we're about the same age and also with Oprah). He was born in Seattle, Washington and is the founder and chairman of Microsoft. He is married to Melinda Gates with whom he has three children.

With his wife he founded the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in 2000 and had donated large amounts of money to various charitable organizations and scientific research programs. He is one of the best-known entrepreneurs of the personal computer revolution.

Bill Gates comes from a wealthy family, the son of William Gates Jr., a lawyer while his mother was a leader in the corporate world.

Like me, I am sure many of you are curious to know more about the world's richest man in the person of Bill Gates.

Who do you think is the next man to be ranked by Forbes' Magazine as the richest man on earth?

Is it going to be you?
