    Additionally, Bill and Melinda Gates are the second most-generous philanthropists in America (as of 2007 by Bloomberg ratings). He has been successfully married for 17 years and has 3 children. He is an honorary Knight. Jobs has an illegitimate child that he caused to be raised on welfare when he denied (then later acknowledged) paternity. He allowed his personal feelings to influence his business decisions when he banned all books from a publisher from Apple stores because the publisher had published an unauthorized biography of him. While his wife is now focused on non-profit and charity work, he is not noted to sit on any of the boards she serves on. I make no claim about their companies, but their lives outside their jobs are as different as night and day.
