On Bill Gates departure media hype and criticism

Many bloggers, journalists, financial analysts wrote pretty nasty things ("monopoly Emperor", "responsible for all the bugs in the world", blablabla) about Bill Gates when he announced his, yet predictable, retiral in a year or so. To me, this is unfair.

(Picture: Bill Gates went to Israel in October 2005. I was in Tel Aviv at the time, and all I can say is that he was better received than the President of the United States would have)

I believe Bill Gates deserves a big applause for all his achievements in the software and technology industry (and soon to come, in charity) he has largely contributed to shape and reshape. Not only does he masters better than anyone else what it takes to develop a computer program (see Joel´s first Bill Gates´s "fucking review"). Bill Gates also had, and still has, a clear vision of where we are going, from where we´re standing. Most importantly, as a true successful entrepreneur and businessman, Bill Gates knows how to share his vision.

Thank you Bill.
