The whole world by now has heard that Bill Gates is stepping down, essentially now. He will be focusing his energy now on doing good things for the world with his money. The world will be much better for this. I do hope he is more successful in changing the world in his new way, than his success in changing the world with his technology.
I spoke with Bill Gates at Microsoft one time, in early 1983. I can only assume it was *the* Bill Gates. I was phoning them from UK for help with their CPM board for the Apple II we were using do to project planning. dBase was the software. Notes on those support calls are written in the DayTimer notes from that error that I still have on my bookshelves, for some strang reason.
