Bill Gates Leaves Microsoft
Today, Bill Gates left Microsoft. As Cord Blomquist pointed out, Bill Gates has created more value for the world in his time at Microsoft than Mother Theresa:
Like it or not, it was Windows that provided the platform for much of the information revolution, which subsequently created a worldwide economic boom. We shouldn’t relegate this accomplishment to a mere footnote in Mr. Gates’ biography and it’s certainly worth considering the moral implications of that sort of wealth creation.
Donating his time and money to philanthropy is excellent as well, but let’s not ignore Gates’ less-charitable contributions to the world.
