    Steve Wood - left 1980, after his wife Marla Wood, then a secretary, organized the female employees and filed a sex-discrimination lawsuit

    Bob Wallace- In 1983, Wallace left Microsoft to form Quicksoft

    Bob O'Rear- Left Microsoft in 1983. Is now a cattle rancher and is worth around $100 million

    Bob Greenberg
    - Bob Greenberg was an employee of Microsoft who left Microsoft in 1981

    Marc McDonald
    - left in 1984 and rejoined in 1990

    Gordon Letwin- he left in 1993 to "kick back" with his wife.

    Paul and Bill still work there.. the others cant find info. But it looks like they all made 100 million plus each no matter when they left!

    hmm, i was pretty sure that paul allen didn't work there anymore. at least not actively, maybe on paper as a consultant or board member. i remember something about bill g. and steve b. majorly screwing him over when he started to come down hodgkins, upon which paul decided that was enough.

    [edit] this article mentions something similar to what i had heard: http://www.pbs.org/cringely/pulpit/pulpit20060330.html
