    Bill Gates to leave daily role at Microsoft in 08'


    Microsoft's Gates to Leave Daily Role
    Jun 15 4:39 PM US/Eastern

    Microsoft Corp. said after the bell Thursday that Chairman Bill Gates will transition out of a day-to-day role in the company to spend more time on his global health and education work at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

    The company announced a two-year transition process to ensure that there is a smooth and orderly transfer of Gates' daily responsibilities, and said that after July 2008 Gates would continue to serve as the company's chairman and an adviser on key development projects.

    Microsoft said Chief Technical Officer Ray Ozzie will immediately assume the title of chief software architect and begin working with Gates on all technical architecture and product oversight responsibilities, to ensure a smooth transition.

    Similarly, Chief Technical Officer Craig Mundie will immediately take the new title of chief research and strategy officer and will work with Gates to responsibility for the company's research and incubation efforts; Mundie also will partner with general counsel Brad Smith to guide Microsoft's intellectual property and technology policy efforts.

    At least, he is using some of his time and money to help others that are in need.

    He probably donates so much because of taxes.

    I heard he will give out 90% of his fortune when he dies... That could really change something. All that money could, if well managed, with interest rates, make life a little better for those who are less fortunate.
