Born on 28 October 1955, little did William Henry Gates AKA Bill Gates knew what he was going to achieve in life. He was one of those personalities who was against the stereotypical education system and believed more in his own talent and look where he has ended up. Interestingly, Gates’ parents wanted him to pursue a career in Law, but his love affair with the customer took him to a level where only he exists.
With 85.6 Billion US Dollars, Bill Gates in the king of the kings as far as wealth is concerned. Alongside his friend Paul Allen, met the founder of Micro Instrumentation and Telemetry System(MITS), who were the founders of the new micro computer. They both shared their ideas on the basic interpreter for their platform and formed a pact with MITS by the name “Micro-soft” and the trade name “Microsoft” was registered with the office of the secretary of the state of Mexico.
After staying in tact with MITS for one year, Microsoft eventually became an individual company and the rest as they say is history. He then formed a partnership with IBM to help them regarding their IBM Personal Computer. In 1985, Microsoft launched its first version of Windows and there was no looking back there after.
Other than Microsoft, Bill Gates formed a charitable trust with his wife Melinda Gates by the name “Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation”, which happens to be the world’s richest charitable trust with over $34.6 billion net worth.
