Bill Gates was born On October 28, 1955, in Seattle, Washington, as William Henry Gates III. He enrolled at Lakeside Prep School, where he wrote his first piece of computer software. In his first year at Lakeside, he was in eighth grade. Gates developed an interest in programming the GE computer in BASIC. The laptop is where he wrote his first program – a tic-tac-toe game.

As soon as their ban was lifted, the boys offered to look for bugs in the software in exchange for extra computer time. A few years later, Gates began studying the code that ran the programs on the computer, including Fortran, Lisp, and machine language. Several years ago, a Lakeside teacher asked Gates and Evans to automate the school’s class-scheduling system. Bill and Melinda got married on January 1, 1994, on a golf course on the Hawaiian Island of Lanai. The Gates family has Phoebe Adele, Rory John, and Jennifer Katharine.

In 1975, Bill Gates and Paul Allen came together to found Microsoft (originally called Micro-Soft). They adapted BASIC, a popular programming language, to make it easier to use on microcomputers. Microsoft and International Business Machine (IBM) were approached by the latter in 1980 with a proposal that Microsoft should develop the BASIC interpreter for IBM’s upcoming personal computer, the IBM PC. A $50,000 one-time fee was charged by Microsoft to IBM for the creation of the PC DOS operating system.

Microsoft’s operating systems quickly became very popular, and on November 20, 1985, the company introduced Windows as a graphical user interface alongside MS-DOS. Bill Gates, the company’s largest individual shareholder, amassed a great fortune. In 1989, Microsoft introduced Microsoft Office, which soon followed. This package integrated several applications, including Microsoft Word and Excel, into one system used with all Microsoft products. MS Office was so successful that it gave Microsoft a virtual monopoly on operating systems for PCs.

Gates resigned as CEO of Microsoft in January 2000 but retained his position as chairman. In January 2000, he created a new part of Chief Software Architect. After spending a few years at Microsoft, he gradually delegated his duties to others and began to devote more time to philanthropic works. Having stepped down as Microsoft’s Chairman in 2014, he is currently serving as a technology advisor to Satya Nadella, the company’s CEO.
