    Paul Allen left and sold his shares of MIcrosoft then went to real estate.

    Bill Gates stuck around Microsoft and kept building his corporate empire charging any price for his products.

    Bill will keep doing it because Windows is the only thing that runs the softwares that we prefer to use and it's compatible with virtually every PC game unlike Linux or Mac OS.

    Different investments and approach in priorities. Also in partnerships there's always a senior partner whose liability is unlimited. Hence high risks and high devidends.

    I hope you understand how it works baby.
