Submission + - Bill Gates No Longer Richest Man 1 1

Edis Krad writes: According to this article, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates is no longer the richest man in the world. His place has allegedly been taken by Mexican Businessman Carlos Slim. From the article:

A Reuters report, citing analysis in the online financial publication Sentido Comun, says Bill Gates is no longer the richest person in the world. His wealth was surpassed by that of Mexican magnate Carlos Slim after shares in one of Slim's biggest holdings increased 27 percent in the second quarter.
While the change is due to Slim's gains (not Microsoft losses), could this be a sign of Microsoft's lack of ability to keep up with business?

The brain is a wonderful organ; it starts working the moment you get up in the morning, and does not stop until you get to work.
