    Bill and Melinda Gates announce they are getting divorced

    She must have just now realized what a total nutcase he is


    Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates — who is worth an estimated $130 billion — and his wife, Melinda, are getting a divorce after 27 years of marriage, the couple announced Monday in a joint statement.
    “After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage,” a statement from the billionaire philanthropist couple, tweeted from both of their personal Twitter accounts at 4:30 p.m. EST, reads.
    “Over the last 27 years, we have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives,” the statement goes on.

    She'll probably find a nice linux distro to settle down with.
    People can change over the years, maybe their views started differing - even political ones. Who knows, time will tell. Lol, I wouldn't know what a linux distro is even if I ran into it - did you mean Bistro?

    That's an interesting story darroll. Somewhere I had a picture of 4 of those big 'Tech' guys together when they were young. They all were kinda 'nerdy' looking guys and often those types aren't especially good at socializing. Obviously many of them had to overcome that.
