Bill Gates to give up 'day to day role' in Microsoft

Bill Gates, the software giant and one of the richest persons in the world, will be giving up his day to day role at Microsoft in 2 years. He will still be chairman of IT. He wants to spend more time at the Foundation, and on activities in the non-profit foundation.

Bill Gates was a high school dropout who made it big in the software industry. He is only 50 years of age, and says this doesn't mean retirement for him. He and his wife, Melinda, have been spending more time the past few years at the Foundation, which has activites in all parts of the world, including Africa and India.
