Hey,

My friend just called me a few mins ago telling me that Bill Gates sold more than 40% of his Stocks for half of what they are worth. This coming from a person that used to work at MS but is now working at a diffrent company, this person also said that this could mean that MS is getting into some trouble.

There was a website where I saw this a few mins ago but forgot where this was. Once I find it I will post it. And BTW I cannot say that this is true or not, but if you know anything about it post it here!

Yeah, because retiring as the richest man in the world means the company he founded is going under?

Seriously...think before you post.

Yeah, because companies making products over 90% of the hitech industry uses need to misrepresent profits...

Just to point out again, the linked article is from Feb 2001, so I don't quite understand any discussion at all... blink.gif
