(Seattle, WA)  --  The University of Washington's computer-science department will be the beneficiary of an infusion of 40-million dollars.  Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen announced the donation yesterday, and the UW Board of Regents responded by raising the computer-science department to the status of a school.  It was also named the Paul G. Allen School for Computer Science & Engineering.  The "Seattle Times" reports Microsoft is giving another ten-million dollars in Allen's honor.
