The world’s richest man, Bill Gates, is all set to step down as the chairman of Microsoft on Friday.
The God of geeks, an inspiration to many a wannabe millionaires and a shrewd businessman, Mr Gates would always be remembered for the huge contribution that Microsoft did for spreading the IT revolution in the world.
Over 90% of the world’s desktops work on Microsoft Windows and almost all of the world’s word processing documents, spreadsheets, are created on Microsoft software.
Love him or hate him, there's no denying Bill Gates' impact on the tech world. Microsoft will be a different place without him. They've needed 3 people just to cover the work he used to do.
