End of An Era

For those who didn't know, today is/was Bill Gate's last day at Microsoft.

It's not quite retirement from the company though: he'll still be the chairman, and he's going to be taking a more active hand in the administration of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

I was going to segue into a geeky marriage proposal story (like Richard Garfield's custom magic card, "Proposal", that it apparently took him 4 games to put into play legally), but it turns out it wasn't really. No point to it, but it would be an interesting highlight.
