Bill Gates will be stepping down in 2008

This is big news in the technology world. It has been reported that Bill Gates will step down as Chief Software Architect in July 2008. He will have current CTO Ray Ozzie move to that position. It is said that Gates will stay Microsoft's Chairman and take an advisory role in development. Gates will be spending more time and energy in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. To read more about this, read the article "Gates Begins Saying His Long Goodbye" on InternetWeek.com.

Does anyone think this will have a positive or negative effect on Microsoft now or in July 2008? Do you think it will effect the open-source world?
