As Bill Gates is an influential and recognized person, many flock to his Wikipedia page in order to use information for reports or just knowledge. Many are getting the impression that Gates no longer own Microsoft or has a hand in the business, however, I would like to add that Gates is a Director on the Board for Microsoft as well.

In the Other business ventures and investments section, the last bullet 'Research Gate' can be a link: ResearchGate. Remove the space and add the brackets. Shadowalker125 (talk) 02:20, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

Done, thank you! Also modified the line about how much he invested; it's not clear how much of the $35m was actually his. Kuru (talk) 02:59, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
