KBE stands for Knight Commander of the British Empire.
Britain will give an honorary knighthood to Microsoft Corp. co-founder and chairman Bill Gates in recognition of his contribution to enterprise in Britain, the government says. Because he is not a British citizen, he cannot use "Sir" in front of his name.

Sadly MikeRoweSoft.com is now owned by Microsoft.
The original MikeRoweSoftDesign is now MikeRoweForums
Rowe will receive reimbursement for out of pocket costs.
That's a bit too cheap, I'd say. Poor boy, got rubbed by a giant company.

Microsoft has admitted it took things 'too seriously' when its lawyers threatened a 17-year-old student called Mike Rowe over his domain name.
So, Microsoft admitted it after the case received widespread coverage (a.k.a. bad publicity) on the Internet. Microsoft still demands the domain name.
The Register has a good report on this, Microsoft prepares Mike Rowe legal exit:
It won't be the first time that Microsoft, or any other big company, has backed down in the face of press hostility only to relaunch its efforts once the fuss has died down.
