I will vote against Mr. Gates when it comes to vote. I feel he handled this badly. I feel he should have settled it and had done with it.

If Microsoft's stock was near 150, you wouldn't have a problem with Bill Gates.

I felt the same thing when Aol was trading near 50. I thought Aol screwed up, but really i wasn't looking long term. Aol wasn't going to stay around 50 dollars a share for ever..

Oh, and the theory i heard was that Bill Gates is a figure head and is really stupid. There is no proof that Microsoft's success is due to him! ;)
