Reading the news I see that today was Bill Gates last day at Microsoft.
Apparently, they held a tearful farewell in Redmond for him. And it
really does mark a significant moment in the history of our industry
and a time to reflect.
If I had a dime for every time I read someone say that Bill Gates
crashed their machine or was someone personally affecting their life in
some negative way, I’d be as rich as he is (well, maybe not). But as
much as you may hate Microsoft and the methods they’ve used to drive
their vision, you have to take a good look at what Bill Gates and
company have done and how they’ve succeeded.
