Microsoft's Gates to leave daily role

My imaginary dad Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates said today that he will gradually give up his day-to-day duties at the company to concentrate on the charitable work of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Gates, 50, will continue as the company's chairman after transferring his duties over a two-year period.

"This was a hard decision for me," said Gates, who founded the world's largest software company with childhood friend Paul Allen. "I'm very lucky to have two passions that I feel are so important and so challenging. As I prepare for this change, I firmly believe the road ahead for Microsoft is as bright as ever."

Dude, this guy is my idol! Yo Bill do your charities include adopting 24 year olds who have major shopping issues? If so, please email us at
