Oh, it was easy.  I do regular maintenance on my "shit list."  (If,  
as the old saw goes, "intelligence is remembering what you're  
interested in" --- then I'd like to offer the following:   
"effectiveness is remembering what you don't like, and why.")  Cut-n- 
paste plus a few shell goodies allowed me to find the set difference  
between the article's list and my own pretty easily. ;-)

I'm beyond worrying about Gates these days.  It's become clear to me  
that the market is reacting to / routing around them in a strategic /  
macro sense, though it's likely to take a long time;  but I no longer  
worry about them owning the whole enchilada and thereby halting all  
forward progress.
