You’re right. I’m sure you’ve done far more good for the world than Bill Gates. You’ve probably saved more lives, and worked on behalf of humanity more than he has. Its thankless work you do, putting in over a hundred hours a week. You’ve probably also done more to develop the computer industry, no doubt.

Because of your massive achievements in this space, you’re rightfully angry at naive resentful product sponges, right?

Nobody’s perfect, but attacking someone who’s actively trying to steer the global population towards a sustainable future is a waste of your energy. There are other people worth directing your displeasure at. As always, the answer is probably in the mirror.
