Gates, Legacy and Historical Blunders

Gates, Legacy and Historical Blunders

Media, chat sessions and Internet (publish) is full with news of Bill Gates exit from Microsoft. Its too early to say whether “Chairman” Bill Gates will act as “American corporate” chairman or “active” board leader.
My views,
In Hindi, there is a saying, “Der aye, Durast Aye”…  “Although the happening is late, but finally is here”.

I was strong proponent of Bill Gates exit and for making him a visionary who “was”. Microsoft did the historic blunder in keeping the company intact during anti trust case. The left over company could have kept its product evolutions without “super czar” sitting on the top.

The technology industry history is full of “Legendry” creating utter chaos in their dawn,

The gold medal for the blunder should go to Wang Industries. Does anyone now remember this company? Only mention on internet you can find is, John Chambers (Current Cisco President and CEO) was once executive of that company. You can write books on this company. I am pasting the Wikipedia link,

Father of innovation in manufacturing, Henry Ford, single handedly gave the #1 auto crown to general motors. Reason, he was thinking only he had vision and capabilities to make auto a mass product. He was right when he was thinking “he had” but was squarely wrong when he was thinking “only he had”.

Fast forward 80 years and you will have Déjà vu: Microsoft, Bill gates and Windows/Office/Explorer…   (Ford industries, H. Ford & Model T).

The list can go on and on….   But I want salute Bill Gates for his vision which he had 20 years back and which he had shown now by taking himself out of Microsoft daily routines. He should stick to his wording.
And he has time and money along with geeky brain; why not try to create another intellectual powerhouse. Software is one industry, and now he is free from shackles of this particular domain...  Go ahead…

i reckon both cheating and beating women is terrible, exclusive couple things may come to attention regarding what type of lady
it might become. don't forget it will really much end up being the guy, not so much the girl. but i suppose if she looks less independent, like if she can't stand up for herself, or can't chat for herself. or there could be many things that would make the guy cheat on her. but i really feel its much more the guy that would expect information like this, instead of the female.
hope everythings alright for ya

This renders utter sense. I think my biggest issue is actually my self-confidence.
Any information on simple tips to get over my fear of rejection?

After we initially commented I clicked the -Notify me whenever brand-new feedback are added-
checkbox and today every valuable time a comment is definitely added I get four emails aided by
the same comment. Is actually there any method you'll be able to take out me from that service? Thank You!

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this
matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.

I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

Its such as you learn my mind! You seem to grasp a lot approximately this,
like you wrote the e-book in it or something. I feel that you can do with
a few p.c. to power the message home a little bit, but
instead of that, this is fantastic blog.
A great read. I'll certainly be back.
