    Microsoft After Bill Gate`s Retirement

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    In 2006, Microsoft announced that Bill Gates would be stepping down from his day-to-day role at Microsoft over a period of two years. Well, two years have passed, and what do you know: Bill Gates has effectively retired from Microsoft. Where it is going now that its founder no longer has his hands on its pulse? That's the subject of this conclusion to a two-part article.


    Of course, in terms of Bill Gates, retirement means retaining the position of Chairman and remaining an integral part of Microsoft's largest projects. However, the software giant is no doubt noticing its founder's absence from such key roles as CEO (since 2000) and chief software architect.

    Now that Gates has officially "retired" from his brainchild, many people are taking a moment to scratch their heads and say, "Now what?" Such a question is natural coming from anyone who has lived in the past thirty years and seen how Gates has ridden his flagship company to the record books by becoming the world's richest man through pure technological success. Rather than simply being a savvy business person such as Donald Trump, Bill Gates is renowned for his ability to actually get his hands dirty and really work on a project. Because of this, much of Microsoft's technological success can be attributed directly to much of the effort Gates has put in.

    Now that Microsoft faces a future with minimal aid from Gates, many are questioning whether it is truly up to the task. Of course, Microsoft does have thousands of brilliant engineers working tirelessly on bringing innovation to the technological world, but is that really enough today?

    Quite simply, everyone's fears are entirely unfounded. Microsoft is currently positioned in such a way that if it does not experience vast growth in the next ten years, then it is doing something incredibly wrong. The world is about to enter a time of technological enlightenment, where computers are no longer just workstations in your home. Rather, computers will be menus at restaurants, displays in cars, and gizmos on watches. Microsoft sees these developments coming and has begun preparing itself for absolute domination in the technological market of the future.
