Bills Gates to transition out of Microsoft

For me who has admired Bill Gates for his life’s work with Microsoft; yesterday was a big day. Bill Gates announced yesterday that from July 2008 he will primarily work in Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. He has announced a transition team that will take over from him the job in Microsoft. I guess it is a good coincidence that from next month Narayana Murthy will relinquish his job in Infosys. Two great achievers in IT field have decided to move on…

I always wondered what makes someone like Bill Gates even after making billions motivated to come to work every-day. Though I don’t have the answer for it; I remember a quote by Narayana Murthy once in an Interview saying that biggest thing for him about making wealth “Is creating a positive impact on other’s lives”. A very profound thought indeed.
