Gates to go

News has broken today that the head of the software giant Microsoft, Bill Gates is to step down from his day-to-day involvement in the company to focus on his charitable work.

In the light of this announcement, many are already discussing the legacy that Gates leaves (for good or for ill) on the computer world. My favourite comment so far is a quip from a writer in one of the the Slashdot news forums. He writes:

Bill Gates' tombstone will read

This man has performed an illegal operation and has been shut down
