Gates to step down as Microsoft CEO
Having said that, there's not much else to report as of yet. I found only this brief statement on ZDNet
(which may be updated later, obviously) that notes Microsoft President Steve Ballmer will be taking over the position, while Gates remains as Chairman. Apparently Gates will also be responsible for "pilot[ing] the company's software development." Considering Microsoft's product line, does that mean Ballmer will be stuck with Intellimice and Natural Keyboards? Hmm.
