Microsoft on New Algorithm

Could the tycoon of Microsoft’s Bill Gates passion for MSN have finally died? Many different hypos have taken over the minds of both new, upcoming and veterans in the world of computing upon the announcement of semi-retirement of Microsoft’s chairman Bill Gates.
It’s been years now since the world of computing has revolutionized through the introduction of the Windows operating system. Now, the same man who changed our world and brought us power within our hands through his world-famous innovation has finally turned the presence of a new algorithm again by announcing his new found passion-charity work. He announced just the other day about plans of doing transitions out of a day-to-day role in the company so he could more intensely focus on charity work through the non-profit Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Although Bill Gates will continue to serve as the company’s chairman and adviser on key development projects, but the majority of his time he said will be devoted to global health and education. I guess it really is about time for him so because at a certain point and time in our lives there comes a time we feel somehow something is missing. Maybe this is it for Bill Gates to take time out of the many mind-boggling ,finger-tapping world of his and find another happiness in other venues aside from his all-time love Microsoft.

Two men will be taking time to cope up with the responsibility of the behemoth software company chairman. By July 2008, Ray Ozzie will assume the title of chief software architect and Craig Mundie will be the newly created chief research and strategy officer while partnering with general counsel Brad Smith to guide Microsoft’s property and technology policy efforts.

This is his personal announcement:

“This was a hard decision for me, and I’m very lucky to have two passions that I feel are so important and so challenging. As I prepare for this change, I firmly believe the road ahead for Microsoft is as bright as ever. I remain fully committed and full time with Microsoft through June 2008 and will be working side by side with Ray and Craig to ensure that a smooth transition occurs.

At 50, Gates might have finally caught up with his own dire need to fill up and feed his soul aside from his natural intellect which is unquestionably superior to have done so much for the web masters until now. He took Microsoft public in 1986 and was the company’s chairman and CEO until 2000, when Balmer took over as CEO. For the past 6 years of his life,he focused on Microsoft’s software development as the company’s chairman and chief software architect.
I personally feel two years is enough time for the staffs to make the necessary changes and fill up for the holes he will leave behind in two years time.
