Feast your eyes on the original, uncut, unedited, raw version of the "Bill Gates' Last Day at Microsoft" video. Right... by now even Apple users have had a smile put on their face by the "Bill Gates' last day at Microsoft" video. This year's keynote address at the 2008 International Consumer Electronics Show, in las Vegas, was also Gates' last. And the co-founder of Microsoft wanted to celebrate his exit with a bang! And can you blame him?
This is why Gates starred in a video fragment allegedly describing his last day with the Redmond company in his active, day-to-day role. Starring alongside Gates are entertainment, political and Microsoft heavyweights, such as Brian Williams, Steve Ballmer, Ray Ozzie, Craig Mundie, Matthew Mcconaughey, Robbie Bach, Jay-Z, Bono, Steven Spielberg, George Clooney, Jon Stewart, Kevin Turner, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Al Gore.But undoubtedly, Gates is the star. And for your viewing pleasure only, I have embedded the video at the bottom of this article, courtesy of Channel 10.
"My first keynote was in 1994, a long time ago. That was a time when Windows 95 was just coming together, the Internet was just getting started, and it was within a few years of that that we entered the start of what we call the first digital decade. During that decade, the PC install base grew to over one billion machines", Gates stated ahead of presenting the video on January 6th, at CES 2008, proving that he has come very close to putting a computer on every desk and in every house around the world.
However, there is also an original, uncut, unedited, raw version of the "Bill Gates' Last Day at Microsoft" video. It is the second video embedded below that was "leaked" and delivered by David Letterman. This is the first take on the "Bill Gates' Last Day at Microsoft" video, before the Redmond company threw in what can only be described as a shameless display of celebrities. And it is edited in Windows... you easily be able to tell that. Gates will leave his day-to-day role at Microsoft as of mid 2008. He has been in a transition period since mid 2006.
