Its true, Bill Gates, probably one of the most famous and richest boomers has announced his resignation from Microsoft Corporation. Whilst this will only take place in the next two years, it certainly is a significant time in the life of Microsoft and the computer and software world. In a Fast Company article, a Microsoft employee is quoted as saying it is the end of an era and this is certainly very true considering the impact Microsoft and more particularly Bill Gates has had on the industry. The article states that Bill will be focusing on being more involved in his Foundation, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and using its $29 Billion to accelerate vaccine development to combat malaria. So, who knows what Bill Gates will be better known for in 50 years from now.
