What we need is a consensus driven national energy strategy/policy. Energy indeendence as well as global warming and other environmental issues should be a part of this strategy.

Gates' decision is to step down from the company's day to day operations. I think it reflects the fact that the fight is now with governments as well as with competitors, and he is just plain tired. I believe new energetic executives at Microsoft may do better in this litigious climate.
