I wonder why Gates would even want further involvement with MS?

I can't honestly say that I'd be able to just walk away from my life's work.

But He is selling his Microsoft stock every year, after 4 or 5 years he will have no stock, so no financial interest in MS.

After 4 or 5 years he will have no MS stock .Do you have any idea how clueless u sound ? He's not selling his stocks but rather spending the profits .Gates is still one of the richest person in the world even after dominate billions to charity .he is not going to run out of stocks in 4 or 5 years sir .
