Dave Cutler Wins First Bill Gates Award

Another report from Microsoft’s annual company meeting says that outgoing Microsoft boss Bill Gates unveiled a new award, The Bill Gates Award, which will be given yearly to the Microsoft employee who has made the absolute highest contribution to Microsoft. The award will only be given to candidates who truly deserve it, and thus will not be given if a suitable winner can be chosen. Bill Gates has said that he will return and personally present the award whenever it is given.

The first recipient of the award was Dave Cutler, who earlier this year won the TCN award, which used to be the top award. Cutler has been instrumental in the development of Windows NT, Windows XP 64-bit, Windows Server 2003 SP1 64 and Windows Vista, and he currently works on Windows Live.
