The New Yorker magazine points a change in the image of Microsoft Corp boss Bill Gates. In the 1993 Funk & Wagnalls encyclopedia, his entry said he was a tough competitor who seemed to value winning in a competitive environment more than money. By 1997, the entry was modified to known for his personal and corporate contribution to charity and educational organizations. A total coincidence, of course, that Funk & Wagnalls was bought by Microsoft in 1993 and its name changed to Encarta.
