Bill Gates will return to Microsoft? No, apparently not . In an interview Gates had in fact confirmed their willingness to remain outside of the daily activities at Microsoft, while holding a large proportion of the shares and always remain tied to the company he founded. The release of Gates of the group is dated July 2008, but since 2006 the process of transition has taken place following the communication officer of farewell to Gates from the helm.
Today, Gates is committed to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation , with major ambitions and to pursue a major role in raising funds for various charities.Microsoft can do without Gates? Probably yes. Could do without Ballmer? This question has no answer for now, but part of the shareholder appears to have some alternative hypothesis in mind.
