Apparently, Bill Gates, at the end of this week, is leaving Microsoft to head the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, which is a charitable philanthropic organization.

I don't know what this holds in store for the company, but I don't think anything severe can happen.

Any thoughts?

Don't they already have their charitable foundation?

Also you're off topic. This thread is about Reva eating snowmen.

Things are either going to get much better, or much worse.

I'm leaning towards the latter. (Microsoft that is)

They formed it in 2001 or something like that, but now he's devoting all his time into it.

He's not been in charge there for years. He'll probably still be a major stakeholder.

Im not caring.
*Fun Facts*
Bill gates makes 20 million dollars a day, which boils down to $250 a second.
Bill became a millionaire by the time he was 30.
He became a billionaire by the time he was 31.
He only carries $1000 bills.
If he dropped a $1000 bill, he wouldn't bother to pick it up because in 4 seconds he would have already earned it back.
