Bill Gates to sign off at Microsoft

That’s right, Bill Gates is retiring from Microsoft and spend his time guiding the world’s richest philanthropy – the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

While Bill will still be Microsoft’s chairman and largest shareholder, Friday was his last day as a full-time worker at Microsoft, marking the unofficial end of his career, running the world’s largest software company.

Much can be said about Microsoft’s success, given that more than 90 percent of the world’s computers (today) run on Microsoft software.

In all honestly, I’m kinda sad that Bill is ‘leaving’ Microsoft, but I’m also glad that he will be joining his wife full time to the now $37 billion foundation they created a decade ago, I can imagine his full focus at the foundation will see huge leaps in areas of charity work aimed at improving healthcare and eradicating extreme poverty in the third world.
