Neither Gates Nor Ballmer Is Microsoft's Highest Paid Exec!

Got this from Gameguru Mania

"According to documents filed Monday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Microsoft's highest paid executive in the 2004 fiscal year was neither its CEO Steve Ballmer nor its Chairman and Chief Software Architect Bill Gates, but the exec responsible for Microsoft Office products - who received $962,500 in bonus and base pay. FYI, Bill Gates, earned $901,667 in Microsoft's 2004 fiscal year, up 4.4 percent from a year ago. Steve Ballmer earned the same amount and got the same raise in the fiscal year ended June 30."

My conclusion: Eventhough the exec is earning more than Bill Gates, Bill Gates is still richer. =P
