  The G in BillG doesn't stand for grammatical

Bill Gates needs to put some of that foundation charitable spending into remedial Grammar schools. From an NYT article on Google's infrastructure:

"Google doesn't have anything magic here," Bill Gates, the Microsoft chairman, said in an interview. "We spend a little bit more per machine. But to do the same tasks, we have less machines."

It's "fewer" for cardinality baby! Maybe he could go finish that Harvard degree after he retires from Microsoft.

The poor grammar might distract people from noticing that on the technological / business levels, that comment is a reality-avoiding rationalization. You wonder how isolated someone needs to be to let something like that come out of their mouth?
