Bill Gates' New Focus
Today marks Microsoft 's bill gates ' last day as frankly I suspect Microsoft might do a little better without Bill Gates . deeply understood area in which Microsoft 's been struggling they think about Bill Gates have in his exitis synonymous with high tech and now he's moving month. Today marks Microsoft's -- bill gates' last day as a full time employees. Gates plans to focus instead on philanthropy through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation so what does this mean for Microsoft and what does this mean for gates himself. Joining us from San Francisco is technology forecaster Paul capital Paul welcome. Nice to be here. Well let's back up a little bit and talk about gates the man and of course gates the technology business powerhouse what is his legacy. Up until now. Well first of all he's the person who took -- --fast follower not an innovator but. His business innovations have resulted in Microsoft been as large as it is and the impact the -- greatest it is. What do you think this'll mean for the company obviously this has been. Somewhat of a slow departure we saw Steve -- take over in 2000 as CEO so this is not you know one day to the next they lose Bill Gates but what does this actually mean for Microsoft . Microsoft will do just fine with. Without bill around -- bill said He shifting from 80% Microsoft and 20% foundation. 220% Microsoft and 80% foundation. Steve bomber is. There's an old friend of his has been there since the beginning and Microsoft has a very very large pool of very experienced executives. And frankly I suspect Microsoft might do a little better without Bill Gates . -- deeply understood the personal computer revolution but over the last ten -- he's just been a little bit slow to pick up. On the Internet revolution. And passing the reins to a new generation at this moment in time might actually help Microsoft . Respond a little bit more quickly to the Internet challenges. Kidding this actually means for Silicon Valley in the technology world I read today just picking up on what you just said. That you know there's not a lot of tears of Microsoft necessarily today what about his competitors and -- is sort of change the industry. I don't think it has much of --greater emphasis on consumer electronics. Which frankly is an area in which Microsoft's been struggling so. I I think people probably are just using this moment to reflect on their own. Mortality. As they think about Bill Gates have in his exit interview at Microsoft today. His exit interview at Microsoft but of course and brand new venture with focusing so much. On his foundation his foundation obviously has done amazing work already. What do you expect he'll do sort of for the Philanthropic community and what kind of an impact do you think that He can have there. I think he's -- shake it up. The gates foundation visited the -- enormously important foundation but so far it has been workman like but not terribly creative. And bills can apply his business creativity. And shake up the entire Philanthropic model. In fact I'll offer you -- forecast. Bill as a big deal and personal computers today but in the hundred years from now when people look back and they mention the name Bill Gates . I'll bet it's a little bit like the way we think of Andrew Carnegie today. People forget what -- He did He was in the steel business. All they remember is that He invented philanthropy for the twentieth century putting libraries into cities across the country. And reinventing the whole process. I'll bet you a hundred years from now Bill Gates is remembered Moore as the philanthropist. Who reinvented this landscape. That is the technologists to help bring the PC to us.

The Two Bills Battle AIDS
Former President Bill Clinton and Microsoft 's Bill Gates . Already have foundations to this The two bills. Together Bill Gates and Bill Clinton have brought changes to the ways aids is being. Bill Gates and Bill Clinton are saying thingsstar power to make people take notice. Former President Bill Clinton and Microsoft's Bill Gates . Already have foundations to fight the disease which killed almost three million people around the world last year alone. But as aids experts meet in Toronto this week these two leaders are finding new ways to leverage their power and fame for the cause. Here's ABC's John McKenzie. They are the main attraction of this -- -- The two bills. Together Bill Gates and Bill Clinton have brought not only star power to this because the profound changes to the ways aids is being. -- Bill Gates and Bill Clinton are saying things that no one else has said and doing things that no analysis done. The gates' contribution is both the money the colossal two billion dollars pledge for aids initiatives. And is unprecedented focus on preventing the disease for every -- should stop -- -- stops. Literally dozens of cases that will take place later so gates is funding research not only on an aids vaccine which may be decades away. But more immediate and controversial strategy where many governments dare not tread. Encouraging condom use testing gels and creams women can use to block infection. Setting up needle exchange programs. Bill Gates is the engine of prevention research right now they are doing everything -- Bill Clinton's contribution his connections in communication skills.

A Microsoft Monopoly?
computer. For Bill Gates that is a marriage That's the appeal Microsoft saying won't the point man for Microsoft 's challengers Magazine calls Bill Gates worst nightmare blinding speed some of Microsoft competitors scoff an all powerful Bill Gates and company. Indeedit must feel a little like playing the game of monopoly. When Microsoft already has park place boardwalk. And all the other good properties eventually everything will wind up on their side of the table. Today the Justice Department agreed that is a very real danger. The vast majority of computer operators do use windows. And the Justice Department believes Microsoft . Is unfairly leveraging that advantage to flood other products specifically its Internet browser onto the market place. And forcing competitors off the board in the process. Microsoft denies at all but Janet Reno wants Microsoft find a million dollars a day at the company doesn't change its ways. I think a move like that might rattle investors but Microsoft still managed to finish up nearly two and a half points in the stock market today. Followed by news of record sales for the first quarter this year which seems to be the point. No matter what Microsoft just keeps rolling along and rolling it up. Which is either good business or dangerous business and in the rock and -- world of high technology -- things can change overnight. He is hard to tell which -- which. So tonight a look at whether Microsoft . Has already one the revolution in a box. Here's Nightline correspondent Chris -- Microsoft is so rich it can rent the Rolling Stone. So profitable later three billion dollars last year is so strong it has nine billion in cash. So successful CEO Bill Gates is the world's wealthiest man. So dominant it's cool. Personal computer software market for the planet earth. So remarkable the saga of gates and company is already at twentieth centuries legends. Microsoft . Is literally the story of two guys in -- Harvard dorm room. Bill Gates and Paul while on the company then starts in Albuquerque, New Mexico only a handful of people are eventually moving back to bill gates' home town near Seattle. It's an incredible story it's shoe strings up to a company that today dominates the computer industry. Microsoft's . Financial success has been incredible that the company. Since its initial public offering in march of 1986. Has grown from revenue base and about a hundred million dollars. Two currently for the twelve months ended in June a company of over thirteen billion dollars. From Microsoft's sprawling campus in Redmond Washington 22000. Employees develop software for every kind of computer. From the giant servers that support computer networks for the desktops in your office and home to portables hand held models and now even televisions. The software business is the company's cash cow foot this is really what makes Microsoft so formidable. Windows the operating system that runs nearly every personal computer on earth. They control nervous system. Roughly 85% of all the computers more. If you -- to hook onto that computer and talk to and get it to talk to you work for you. You -- with Microsoft the Microsoft empire however impressive it seems now is just in the early stages of its global expansion. The company has so many ambitious visions for competing in so many facets of our economic life. That -- wary adversaries are exaggerating just a bit when they pose the question is Microsoft taking over the world. Microsoft took over the world long ago. -- -- they're just they're just excusing out plan. And the plan is -- to become the largest industrial enterprises in the history of mankind. And I have no doubt that they're going to succeed. Our objective is a PC on every desktop and in every home Microsoft executives have another way of putting it. -- focused on now on developing great software. Getting a decent market share. Providing attributes that people can really utilized and -- we know our business will be good. When we do that and -- doing -- is getting into the cable business. Lately Microsoft has been on a shopping spree to help sustain its phenomenal growth. Spending a billion dollars for a chunk of the cable TV company Comcast. New reports say it may invest a billion or so -- with TCI another huge cable operator. Microsoft spent 425. Million dollars to buy web TV. A company that connects the Internet to television sets what in the world is Bill Gates after now. He wants access to the cable box because in each cable box is a powerful microprocessor or computing. That hasfaster than a telephone line hooked up to your personal computer. For Bill Gates that is a marriage made in -- That's the appeal Microsoft -- -- saying -- won't get all these people to buy these -- TVs all these people who don't have personal computers in America personal computers. Are in about 40% of American homes that means they're not in 60% of American homes and -- a market worth going for. Hard core about that. -- the Internet. Microsoft was slow to fathom the potential -- -- now -- busy playing catch up. Giving away software known as a browser but not only cruises the -- but steers you to the Microsoft company stores. A travel service complete with a video maps and airplane seating charts and online car dealer. A local arts and entertainment -- a news -- a political magazine. And investment service and Microsoft's own computer game. We called the web lifestyle. Pete Higgins runs Microsoft's Internet business. Long term this class -- products we think will be a good revenue producer if we can in the short run. Find build the products that make millions of people happy with the belief and that. The vision is that we can turn that into -- revenue history. Microsoft doesn't. Suppose that it's going to control all the content. But it knows it has to be involved in the content business of putting a billion here and a billion there doesn't matter that much when you have so much money coming in. Microsoft stunning success and its mission to focus next on the Internet raised two big questions. Is this company really so powerful that it represents a threat. And where exactly is the line between smart business and unfair monopoly. In a moment the new battle between Microsoft . And the US Justice Department. This is ABC news Nightline. Brought to you -- funds. --Resistance. Is -- child from this time forward. Us. Some competitors compare Microsoft for the Star Trek creatures called before. Aliens that conquer by absorbing their victims and on the Internet the company's critics produce more than 100 web pages -- you can take a virtual punch -- Bill Gates . -- check his net worth hour to hour. In this world Microsoft is the bookkeeping. There's a big difference between competing fairly. And competing there -- Microsoft has competed California attorney Gary Reback as the point man for Microsoft's challengers big and small. WIRED Magazine calls -- Bill Gates worst nightmare. They're -- for quiet within the rules they're always pushing the envelope and I don't mean in eighth in a competitive wholesome way. I mean they're always pushing the limits of the law. I can tell you we tell our people that we hire. On day one look we're gonna follow the law and we're gonna be an ethical firm. This is Silicon Valley south of San Francisco the heart and soul of the nation's computer business. Here Microsoft is respected and feared as a powerful giant whose every foot step sends shivers through the entire industry. In fact trust busters at the Justice Department and half a dozen state attorneys general. Are not taking a hard look at longstanding complaints that the giant unfairly crushes its competition. Microsoft . Is. A monopoly without comparison in the history of monopolies. Microsoft is a monopoly according to reback because it controls the operating systems or the desktops. In nine out of ten personal computers. Who controls the eyeballs in other words when you look at your computer what's the first thing that you see if what you first see is Microsoft . And other competitors have no ability to get before the consumers' eyeballs. Then Microsoft is gonna continue to be able to extend its monopoly. Today attorney general Reno agreed Microsoft is unlawfully taking advantage of its windows monopoly. To protect and extend that monopoly and undermine consumer choice. The Department of Justice will not tolerate that kind of conduct. In seeking a one million dollar a day fine the Justice Department acknowledged it was taking an unprecedented slap against Microsoft . Microsoft is free to compete and compete aggressively. But. Not on lawfully. A lot of these allegations are the same old tired allegations. Microsoft vowed to fight the Justice Department in court. We intend to vigorously defend our ability to continue to improve windows. To add new features and functionalities. Which we believe ultimately benefits the customer. We -- the double. Last year from about 400 people about 4400 people the complaint against Microsoft came from executives at Netscape. A fast growing software company that struck gold with its web browser which sells for 59 dollars. But Microsoft began giving away its own browser the Internet explore and required computer manufacturers. To offer it with windows. Netscape co-founder mark in Dreessen says though is that is an unfair advantage. And what they're able to do -- they're able to illegally we believe -- -- monopoly power to block competition they're able to strike exclusionary deals with PC manufacturers. They're able to pay people to not use our software and able to do other things that the monopolist are legally -- allowed to do. Is Microsoft a monopoly now believe that lets look at the situation realistically as to what's happening in this industry. Prices for these products continue to drop capabilities. Of these products continued to increase and the winner here is the user. Scott McNealy the CEO of Sun Microsystems. As another big problem with Microsoft . Some licenses of programming language called shop that allows different computer systems to talk to each other. McNealy has filed a lawsuit accusing Microsoft of tinkering with -- so it will only run on windows the Microsoft operating system. If you have a 100% pure cup of Java. And I offered to you might be interested pretty excited about it has a lot of nice features the second I had three drops of poison and a couple job we'll what are you get. Windows. It is not job. And Microsoft can build windows with almost all Java code are almost no Java code in it it is still windows -- -- still only run on Microsoft environment. That did wrong. What Microsoft is doing. -- Microsoft is opening up the power and functionality and services of windows to all developers instead of constraining them. To the definition that sun -- -- job. We're giving developers the option to take advantage of these additional services. Now Microsoft critics in Silicon Valley fought the Justice Department to focus on the company's ambitious plans. For the Internet web TV and cable. We -- the view that as the death grip. What Microsoft . Wants to do it is to control. With all the choke points and access points to the Internet they want to control the Internet not by monopolizing. All of what's called cyberspace. But if they can control the way you get to the Internet. Then -- they'll have control of the entire Internet. The software revolution is moving at such blinding speed some of Microsoft competitors scoff at the notion of an all powerful Bill Gates and company. Indeed one leading software developer told Nightline quote. Microsoft may be taking over the world too bad for them it's yesterday's --

But fast forward more than three decades later and it finds itself competing with what was once the Internet search engine that could. Google.

Types in you know a search term into one of those little white boxes over 60% of the time -- doing that in the middle white folks that's on the Google page. For decades Bill Gates and Microsoft were pioneers Al maneuvering their competitors. But -- when it comes to the millions who now search online and it's a huge
