What Does The Gates Retirement Really Mean?

Posted on 20th June, 2006

So what will happen to Microsoft without Bill?

“The press is going to write about this, but I don’t think Gates stepping away is that big a deal in terms of business impact,” IDC senior research analyst Richard Shim told internetnews.com. “If Steve Jobs said he was going to leave Apple, that would be huge because he makes a lot of the decisions. Gates’ last big development decision was probably Windows 95.”

So no impact? I suppose this is because Microsoft is so big, decisions are made at all levels. Most of the pivotal decisions weren’t made by Bill Gates alone, so people are used to having or rather not having Bill Gates visible upfront everytime a major decisions are made.
