Gates, who wants to "spend more time on his global health and education work," through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has had much influence on the history of not only Microsoft but on the software and computer industries as a whole, including Apple's history.

After the transition period, Gates, who at age 50 is considered to be the world's richest person, will remain the company’s chairman and will be an advisor on key development projects.

Gates was sometimes criticized in the past for a late start to philanthropy, but has since devoted much time and attention, along with his wife, to health and education issues.

Heard this earlier today

He's Not resigning, he's retiring.

He'll still be getting millions, only now he wont have to do anything to get it lol.

He's going to spend a while make sure everyone gets the hang of it without him, ensuring they dont go bankrupt the day he retires and he has no way to get money haha
