He would throw some things out, you know, some stimulating things,” Gates said in a wide-ranging interview scheduled to air tonight. “We’d talk about the other companies that have come along. We talked about our families and how lucky we’d both been in terms of the women we married. It was great relaxed conversation.”

“It’s very strange to have somebody who’s so vibrant and made such a huge difference and been… kind of a constant presence, to have him die,” Gates said. “It makes you feel like, ‘Wow, we’re getting old.’ I hope I still have quite a bit of time for the focus I have now, which is the philanthropic work. And there’s drugs we’re investing in now that won’t be out for 15 years–malaria eradication, I need a couple of decades here to fulfill that opportunity. But, you know, it reminds you that you gotta pick important stuff, because you only have a limited time.”
