Nope, Bill Gates not coming back to Microsoft

Would be revolutionary if he did, though.


Sometimes, a rumor is just a rumor no matter how appealing it may look. Earlier in a Fortune magazine article, it was wondered what would be different if Bill Gates returns to Microsoft full-time. This got a lot of people to believe that he may infact be pondering such a move. Well, tough luck.

AllThingsD breaks our bubble and informs us the words straight from Gate’s chief of staff Larry Cohen that Bill Gate’s will not return to Microsoft. He’s very happy being a philanthropist overseeing the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and only does work with Microsoft on a part-time basis. Surely disappointing, but hardly surprising.

Do you think a return of Bill Gates back into Microsoft is in the cards?
