  • Bill Gates was born on October 28, 1955 in Seattle in a family
    having rich business, political and community service background.
    His great-grandfather was a state legislator and a mayor, his
    grandfather was vice president of national bank and his father was
    a lawyer. Bill believed in achieving his goals through hard work. He
    also believes that if you are intelligent and know how to use your
    intelligence, you can reach your goals and targets. From his early
    days Bill was ambitious, competitive and intelligent. These qualities
    helped him to attain great position in the profession he chose also
    Bill was deemed by his peers and his teachers as the smartest kid
    on campus; Bill’s parents came to know their son’s intelligence
    and decided to enroll him in a private school, known for its intense
    academic environment. That was the most important decision in
    Bill Gate’s life where he was first introduced to computers. Bill
    Gates and his friends were very much interested in computer and
    formed “Programmers Group” in late 1968. Being in this group,
    they found a new way to apply their computer skill in university of
    Washington. In the next year, they got their first opportunity in
    Information Sciences Inc. in which they were selected as
    programmers. ISI (Information Sciences Inc.) agreed to give them
    royalties, whenever it made money from any of the group’s
    program. As a result of the business deal signed with Information
    Sciences Inc., the group also became a legal business.
    Bill Gates and his close friend Allen formed a new company of their
    own, Traf-O-Data. They developed a small computer to measure
    traffic flow. From this project they earned around $20,000. The era
    of Traf-O-Data came to an end when Gates left the college. Upon
    graduating from Lakeside Bill enrolled in Harvard University in
    1973, one of the best universities in the country, He didn’t know
    what to do, so he enrolled his name for pre-law. He took the
    standard freshman courses with the exception of signing up for
    one of Harvard’s toughest mathematics courses. He did well over
    there, but he couldn’t find it interesting too. He spent many long
    nights in front of the school’s computer and the next day asleep in
    class. After leaving school, he almost lost himself from the world
    of computers. Gates and his friend Paul Allen remained in close
    contact even though they were away from school. They would
    often discuss new ideas for future projects and the possibility of
    starting a business one fine day. At the end of Bill’s first year,
    Allen came close to him so that they could follow some of their
    ideas. That summer they got job in Honeywell. Allen kept on
    pushing Bill for opening a new software company. Within a year,
    Bill Gates dropped out from Harvard. Then he formed Microsoft.
    Microsoft’s vision is “A computer on every desk and Microsoft
    software on every computer”. Bill is a visionary person and works
    very hard to achieve his vision. His belief in high intelligence and
    hard work has put him where he is today. He does not believe in
    mere luck or God’s grace, but just hard work and competitivene ss.
    Bill’s Microsoft is good competition for other software companies
    and he will continue to stomp out (challenge) the competition until
    he dies. He likes to play the game of Risk and the game of world
    domination. His beliefs are so powerful, which have helped him
    increase his wealth and his monopoly in the industry. Bill Gates is
    not a greedy person. In fact, he is quite giving person when it
    comes to computers, internet and any kind of funding. Some years
    back, he visited Chicago’s Einstein Elementary School and
    announced grants benefiting Chicago’s schools and museums
    where he donated a total of $110,000, a bunch of computers, and
    provided internet connectivity to number of schools. Secondly, Bill
    Gates donated 38 million dollars for the building of a computer
    institute at Stanford University. "such as the meaning of his name
    is Bill Gates, which means the gate of the money..."
