[Updated video] Bill Gates leaving might help mend Silicon Valley fences

Here is a short clip from CNET of a tearful Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, telling employees to personally thank Bill Gates for the opportunity to work at Microsoft and thank him for instilling the culture of Microsoft, its "passion, intensity, and tenacity."There are still many in Silicon Valley that will remember Bill Gates and his Microsoft culture as leading the company into illegal business activities.

Here is a short clip from CNET of a tearful Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, telling employees to personally thank Bill Gates for the opportunity to work at Microsoft and thank him for instilling the culture of Microsoft, its "passion, intensity, and tenacity." There are still many in Silicon Valley that will remember Bill Gates and his Microsoft culture as leading the company into illegal business activities. Microsoft was found guilty of violating US anti-trust laws and there are still many entrepreneurs that remain bitter towards Microsoft for its illegal practices. I've been wondering if Microsoft might now find it easier to mend fences with Silicon Valley now that Bill Gates is largely out of the picture.
