    I didn't see this coming. I just spent some time in Seattle and it was funny seeing Bill Gates at a random book store or out shopping. I just woke up and read the news. 27 years of marriage is a long time.

    I can't see them having a harsh divorce. They will most likely split everything. I've read there is no prenup. Call me old fashioned but the thought of a person losing their mate at age 65 is sad and rare. They probably had issues for awhile now.

    The punner takes it all.

    I'm just wondering how they will split their assets.
    I'll take Windows 3.1, you can take 95, I'll take 98... let's donate Clippy to charity,...

    I hear she was tired of living in a Gated community.
    I hear Bill would never keep her updated.
    I hear Mac was involved in the breakup.
    I hear Bill wanted new Windows but she was happy with the older Windows.

    Aye Thang yaw.

    Its a bit different for someone like Gates. He is a huge celebrity thanks to his wealth and his company. These people have eyes on them all the time, cameras shoved in their faces everywhere they go. Its going to look a bit strange when the removal men turn up at their mansion and remove half the contents, or when Bill shows up to events on his own. It's better for them to announce it themselves than for them to let the media spin up stories like they do.

    They have 7 mansions, a condo in every country on Earth and 4 yachts.

    I don't think they will fight over the tv remote.

    Pre-nup or not, he'll likely have quite a bit less after this.

    They're not actually getting divorced, they chose not to accept the new terms and agreement of their marriage license.
