It seems that every year Bill Gates goes on the Daily Show, and every year the focus moves farther, and farther away from Microsoft.

This year, in the actual discussion between Bill and the Jon, there was not one mention Bill’s old company, although Stewart did crack a joke or two about the Windows launch sound earlier in the program. The audience ate it up.

By far the most memorable part of the interview is towards the end when Jon calls Bill Batman, repeatedly. When you think about it, aside from muscles, Mr. Gates does have the money and the gadgets to be Bruce Wayne. Watch the clip if you enjoy Bill trying to smile while not looking like a dork.
