As much as I bash Microsoft for their monopolistic practices and creating products that hinder intellectual advancement of software, I admire Bill Gates. Bill came up with some revolutionary computing ideas and made them a reality. So it is sad for me to see him retire today. Since he gave up control of Microsoft, it has been playing catch up in a lot of arenas. Still, he is much more than just his Microsoft legacy. I hope he will continue to march on in his philanthropic endeavors as well. I salute you, Mr. Gates and all your accomplishments.
PS. The Zune sucks nuts. Seriously, do any of you know who owns one of those?
