I think Bill Gates will be mostly known more for creating Microsoft and Windows and partly for his charity work! People in 100 years will say " I remember Bill Gates, he created Microsoft and WIndows"! Steve Jobs on the other hand will be known as the person who brought Apple back up.

Why? You can have any Office you like, as long as it's Microsoft
Bill Gates is a little more comparable to Henry Ford than Da Vinci. Have we forgotten about Henry Ford?

You see how fast the discussion of what is "important" changes now. A twitter post can make headline news. Multiply this accelerating trend times a billion, and you will see that in the not-so-distant future, nothing is timeless. Truly. Everything becomes disposable and transient. That includes the legacies of giants.
People in 100 years will be straight out of the movie "idiocracy" so they won't remember much of anything.

Considering that Bill Gates will be leaving the vast majority of his wealth to charity I think it's fair to assume he will be remembered.
