read the latest Fool on Microsoft....of course Gates doesn't want to start giving dividends, because he'llhave to continue them. but....if a rich company doesn't pay dividends, why would a gray haired old lady keep her stocks? she can't live on them, or put her grandson through college on them. that's what Gates forgets....he's greedy for control of the company, but it's on the shareholders back. he couldn't own the company without us! and he's forgotten that. not a good thing. why not cash in and pay off some debt?
