Bill Gates has talked about solving poverty while being one of the richest men in the world. He’s lectured at TED about solving malaria. He talks about solving misery on a number of different things. Unfortunately for him, he couldn’t solve the problems at home, and he and his wife Melinda are splitting ways. The numbers for this divorce are going to be huge, but also very private. 27 years of marriage, and now they are splitting ways like so many years ago when Internet Explorer was split away from Window OS. The real winners will be the lawyers.
