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.

If Apple contributed financially to Melinda Gates Foundation she wouldn't have a problem with it.

My only thought on reading this item, is I assume people from Microsoft give to the MGF and that is where her and Bill's priorities are.

Or maybe it's simply because her husband created Microsoft.
