Bill Gates just made an announcement that was carried on CNN and CNBC. He will transition out of day-to-day operations of Microsoft over the next two years and concentrate on the The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and further develop a global health and education network.
Many people dislike Bill Gates, Microsoft, and Windows. I have always been very neutral.
My fascination is with the story of how the company was built and how it has innovated. I will watch with great interest to see what kind of impact the richest person in the world can make. While it may be an enormous task to take on and the responsibility large, what an awesome job that would be.
