I guess Bill Gates is as honestly convinced that the world would be a better place if everybody used Windows, as we are that it would be better if everybody used open source alternatives
To be more precise, I believe Gates is convinced primarily that the world would be a better place if everybody used the same platform. He's also convinced that the only practical way he can bring that about is if that platform is Windows.
And then from the other side, I'd like to point out that some of discussion here makes it clear that "we" are not all convinced that the world would be a better place if everyone used Linux -- or free software. Many of us instead favor diversity, many favor choice, and some are just ambivalent.
