Bill Gates friendly with new EU antitrust commissioner

"Neelie Kroes, the woman in line to take over as the European Commission's competition tsar, once gave an honorary degree to Microsoft's Bill Gates. In her new role, Ms Kroes will have the power to settle an anti-trust case that Brussels brought against the world's largest software company... Mr Gates, founder and chief executive of Microsoft, was awarded the degree by the Nijenrode Business School in 1996. Ms Kroes was president of the school at that time. 'You don't give an honorary degree if you are not thinking that he, at the time, was doing a good job,' she explained on Friday."
