Bill Gates says goodbye.

Bill Gates takes one last stand.

After a 2 year transition period, Bill Gates has made his final speech as Chairman and co-founder of Microsoft industries at the TechEd Developers Conference.
After spending over 35 years, as a Full, day-to-day Microsoft employee and Chairman, Bill gates says that he will be spending only "20%" of his time, working towards Microsoft Industries.

What will he do the rest of the time?
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will be his new goal. He will be working towards his very own foundation, giving only a small portion of his time, to the company he gave birth to.

But after 35 years of nurturing, Bill Gates, says he trusts the strive and determination within Microsoft, and believes that Microsoft will continue to strive even under the pressure of such a heavy blow.

I personally find this rather upsetting as I'm fond of Bill Gate's presence in computers, and believe he is one of many reasons, that computers are, what they are.

Hardware makers' Drivers must meet Microsoft 7's tests.

Microsoft are now making it mandatory for Hardware makers to carry out the Microsoft 7 tests, in order for them to earn themselves the 'Certified for Microsoft 7' badge.

With Microsoft's new multi-touch technology, being released on their new Operating system, that will also include several other major graphic interface changes, it comes as no surprise that a new level from the drivers will be needed, and met. To do this, Microsoft are making it mandatory that hardware makers fit the Microsoft 7 profile.

They have wasted no time, starting this process, with the launching on the Operating system expected in 2 years time, but then again; we all should have seen this coming after the Windows Vista's driver flops and constant incompatibility.

Lets just hope this testing pays of, and they don't make the same mistake as last time.
