    Your headline should be.
    Bill Gates quits one job so he can focus on the other.

    if i were him right now i would also focus the bulk of my time on philanthropy, not on growing microsoft. someone a bit younger and hungrier is probably better suited for that anyway.

    Yeah this is a wise decision on his part.

    If you were him would you want to be remembered as the Microsoft dude who made billions or the Humanitarian who gave billions.

    Billy G is working on his legacy right now

    I wish him all the best. He's been a major contender for years and I admire him greatly.
