“If Yahoo had gone the direction of just being a media company and not said that software innovation was important to them then no, there wouldn’t be that intersection because we’re about breakthrough software,” Gates said. “Jerry Yang to his credit has kept a lot of very top engineers that have been just doing their work and improving those things. That’s why we see the combination as so powerful.”
