Apple Being the brains behind Microsoft has made Bill Gates the wealthiest guy in the world. So he can pretty much afford to buy his kids any gadgets they want. However, Apple devices are banned in the Gates’ house. This is surprisingly not a rule set by Bill Gates. Melinda Gates has made it very clear in an interview with The New York Times that she does not allow Apple hardware in the house. If the kids want an iPod they’ll have to settle for a Zune instead.

What about freedom?

But what about freedom?

Freedom to download code and modify it and compile it. Or just download latest Debian Testing binary and install+use it.

Do children have this freedom in the Gates house? If they don't have it then what about freedom expression?
