Bill Gates' Charming Retirement Goodbye Video

Our pal Gizmodo, who is covering the 2008 CES* show like there's no tomorrow, has a video of Bill Gates retirement from Microsoft.

If the star-studded farewell video was carefully crafted to project Bill as a goofy and lovable geek figure (and not the uber-competitive businessman he was supposed to be), I'd say it hit the mark:

Bill (playing Guitar Hero): Dude, wasn't that the craziest rift you've ever heard?

Bono: Oh for f*ck's sake! Bill, we've talked about this before, we're full up in the band, Bill. All positions are filled ...

Definitely worth a look see: Link [Flash video, 3:55 min]
