Bill Gates is mulling a return to Microsoft according to a well-placed source. The mole told Fortune that the tycoon may consider clasping the reins of the company he co-founded and replacing Steve Ballmer as CEO.
The remarks came from "a prominent chief executive", according to the site. Gates left Microsoft to focus on philanthropy in June 2008, though he is still the chairman of the board and the company's largest shareholder.
