Bill Gates’s Last Official Day at Microsoft

After today, Bill Gates will no longer be a regular employee of Microsoft, the software company that he founded in 1975. Gates will be focusing his efforts on his Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, but he will still spend twenty percent of his “retirement” working on Microsoft projects.

In the linked article, Dan Farber says, “The planet will be better off with Gates focused on technologies and strategies for saving lives rather than defeating Steve Jobs.” I agree wholeheartedly. Bill Gates can do far more good and is a much better person as a philanthropist than as a monopolist.
