As Microsoft turns 40 today, its co-founder and former CEO Bill Gates has sent a letter to the employees of the software giant, reminiscing less on the past and focusing more on the future.


Here’s the full text of Gates’ email to Microsoft employees:


Tomorrow is a special day: Microsoft’s 40th anniversary.



Early on, Paul Allen and I set the goal of a computer on every desk and in every home. It was a bold idea and a lot of people thought we were out of our minds to imagine it was possible. It is amazing to think about how far computing has come since then, and we can all be proud of the role Microsoft played in that revolution.


Today though, I am thinking much more about Microsoft’s future than its past. I believe computing will evolve faster in the next 10 years than it ever has before. We already live in a multi-platform world, and computing will become even more pervasive. We are nearing the point where computers and robots will be able to see, move, and interact naturally, unlocking many new applications and empowering people even more.


Under Satya’s leadership, Microsoft is better positioned than ever to lead these advances. We have the resources to drive and solve tough problems. We are engaged in every facet of modern computing and have the deepest commitment to research in the industry. In my role as technical advisor to Satya, I get to join product reviews and am impressed by the vision and talent I see. The result is evident in products like Cortana, Skype Translator, and HoloLens — and those are just a few of the many innovations that are on the way.

由萨蒂亚(Satya)领导的微软比之前女友何时候都更合适去引领这类进步。大家有资源来促进行业进步、解决难点。现代计算机应用的很多方面都有大家的身影,大家也极力投身于行业研究。作为萨蒂亚的技术顾问,我在参与商品评论时所感觉到的远见和才能给我留下了深刻的印象。它们也非常明显地体目前大家的商品上,像是微软小娜(Cortana)、Skype语音翻译和Hololens 全系眼镜,而且这类只不过大家正在做的革新中的一小部分。

In the coming years, Microsoft has the opportunity to reach even more people and organizations around the world. Technology is still out of reach for many people, because it is complex or expensive, or they simply do not have access. So I hope you will think about what you can do to make the power of technology accessible to everyone, to connect people to each other, and make personal computing available everywhere even as the very notion of what a PC delivers makes its way into all devices.


We have accomplished a lot together during our first 40 years and empowered countless businesses and people to realize their full potential. But what matters most now is what we do next. Thank you for helping make Microsoft a fantastic company now and for decades to come.
