ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's comments on the retirement of founders of Apple Inc., Dell Computer Corp., Microsoft Corp. and Oracle Corp. He says these handoffs will have mixed effects. The author says for Apple, expect a 30% drop in the stock price on the day the news breaks, followed by a period of disarray and confusion. He says for Microsoft the loss of Bill Gates would not be nearly as profound and under Steve Ballmer, Microsoft is enduring one of the worst times in its history.
