Bill Gates to quit his job at MS to become full-time rich guy.

Filed under: Microsoft — Hogg @ 4:54 pm

Slashdot reported on Thursday that Mr. Microsoft himself, Bill Gates, would be stepping down as chief software architect at the mammoth of a company that he helped create to work full-time at the Gates Foundation (where his new title will be “cheif rich guy in charge of being rich”).

Bill Gates will be leaving his role at Microsoft in July 2008. He’ll be staying with the company, but is also moving to a more fulltime position with the Gates Foundation. ‘Microsoft Corp. today announced that effective July 2008 Bill Gates, chairman, will transition out of a day-to-day role in the company to spend more time on his global health and education work at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The company announced a two-year transition process to ensure that there is a smooth and orderly transfer of Gates’ daily responsibilities, and said that after July 2008 Gates would continue to serve as the company’s chairman and an adviser on key development projects.’

In other words, he’ll keep getting a cut of all of Microsoft’s mounds of cash. Good work, Bill. You dropped out of college yet you still continue to outsmart us all.
