Confused Frenchmen announce Bill Gates' death

Confused sub-editors at the French weekly news magazine Le Nouvel Observateur today announced the death of Bill Gates.

Le Nouvel Obs, as it has become known, ran a piece about Steve Jobs under the title 'Mort de Bill Gates'.

It was not long before twitterers noticed and began lampooning the earnest rag.

The headline has since been changed, although a reference on Google is retained here for posterity thanks to @Nicolas_Canut

Bill Gates is alive and well, as far as we know.
