Bill Gates and Melinda Gates to divorce after 27 years

Bill Gates, co-founder and former CEO of Microsoft, famous for, at one time, becoming the world’s richest person by creating an insecure, upside-down and backwards Mac OS wannabe, said in a tweet on Monday that he and his wife, Melinda Gates, will be getting a divorce after 27 years of marriage.

Jordan Novet for CNBC:

Last year Bill Gates stepped down from Microsoft’s board as the coronavirus became a force around the world. He began spending more time on the nonprofit Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation alongside Melinda Gates. The two are co-chairs and trustees of the foundation, which launched in 2000.

Bill and Melinda Gates met at Microsoft. She had been a marketing manager at the software company.

  1. I guess it is time to install Wife 2.0. Though at this point there may have been an incompatibility issue with Girlfriend 4.0 which caused Wife 1.0 to crash. So he might want to reinstall those drivers first.
