William Henry Gates, III was born on October 28, 1955 in Seattle, Washington. Like him or not, he is the real Geek who deserves to be wished by each and everyone in this world.
Gates founded “Micro-soft” with Paul Allen in 1975. (The hyphen was dropped a year later.) Throughout the early years of the company. It is widely reported that Gates would review all of the code the company put out line-by-line, and would make changes to it as he saw fit.
Microsoft got its start by creating a BASIC interpreter for the Altair computer. It then formed a partnership with IBM to provide the PC-DOS operating system in 1980. In 1985, Microsoft Windows was first released to the retail public, and the rest, as they say, is computing history.
