William (Bill) H. Gates is chairman and chief
software architect of Microsoft Corporation,
the worldwide leader in software, services
and Internet technologies for personal and
business computing. Microsoft employs more
than 50,000 people in 78 countries and
regions. Bill Gates was born in 1955. Gates
grew up in Seattle with his two sisters. His
father has been a lawyer and his mother was
a teacher. Gates attended public elementary
school and the private Lakeside School.
There, he discovered his interest in software
and began programming computers at the
age of 13. His first program was the game tic
tac toe. In 1973, Gates entered Harvard
University, where he shared a room with
Steve Ballmer, now Microsoft’s chief
executive officer. While he was going to the
Harvard University, he developed a version of
the programming language BASIC for the first microcomputer – the MITS Altair. In his junior year, Gates left
Harvard to devote his energies to Microsoft, a company he had begun in 1975 with his childhood friend Paul
Allen. Guided by a belief that the computer would be on every office desktop and in every home, they began
developing software for personal computers. Gates‘ foresight and his vision for personal computing have been
central to the success of Microsoft and the software industry. Under Gates‘ leadership, Microsoft has advanced
and improved software technology, and has made it easier, cheaper and more enjoyable for people to use
Bill Gates got married in 1993 and he has 3 children. Gates enjoys playing golf and bridge. Today he is the
richest man in the world.
I think he is a great man because he has influenced the 20th century more than any other person. He has
influenced the development of the computer more than all other people, because he founded the biggest
computer software company. He and the programmer of his company developed some other operating
systems like windows xp, windows vista and the newest system windows seven. His company programmed
some other programs for simplifying to use the computer.
