Bill Gates To Cease Running Microsoft in 2008
“After more than 30 years, Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates concluded this week that it’s time for him to start moving on.
“Some analysts and investors believe he might just be right.
“A day after Gates detailed plans for a two-year transition from his day-to-day duties, the company’s shares closed up 3 cents, at $22.10. It wasn’t a ringing endorsement by any means, but it also wasn’t the negative reaction that easily could have accompanied such an announcement from someone who so deeply personifies a company.”
