It's supposed because of his charitable works or something. It looks like Sir Francis Drake's reign as the only Pirate to recieve the knighthood is over.

    That is because the Queen's PC running windows 98 crashed and that was the only way she could get tech support.

    I wasn't aware that they could knight people who weren't English. I guess I am wrong.

    It's an 'honorary' knighthood. He can't be a knight of the realm but he can be a sort of... back-up knight. He's like a CD copy of the original media.

    Also he's not to be addressed "sir" - that's reserved for british citizens...

    In other words he's a lot like Windows.

    He is offically a 'Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire'. He can put 'KBE' after his name.

    He joins people such a Bob Geldof, Steven Spielberg and former New York Mayor Rudi Giuliani.
