    Love him or hate him, Bill Gates has been a venerable world-wide business icon for more than three decades, ever since the first mass-produced personal computer debuted in 1981. Gates has consistently been ranked as one of the world's wealthiest men – as well as one of the most controversial founders and CEOs in history – and businesspeople of all stripes have taken their cues from him, using his words and business strategies to help create and grow their own companies.

     

    The time when bill Gates born. The time when Microsoft Incorporated. The time when Bill meets Melinda. and the time when Windows born.

    Here is the complete timeline of Bill Gates and Microsoft : The History of Microsoft and Bill Gates [Timeline]

    @Rahul_Manekari:well, the current day Bill Gates and Microsoft have a record of one fail after another. Maybe his earlier success was due to the work of others?

    Bill Gates's interests lay in IP collection and management more then engineering (as his co-founder Paul Allen BTW), which I think makes him much less important then some other persons in our craft.

    Steve Ballmer seems a good choice by Bill Gates, as he managed to turn Microsoft to the greatest patent troll working today.

    "Our"? I didn't know that being an anti-Microsoft troll was considered a craft.

    You chose that paragraph as the one to call a troll? The first paragraph at least had some citations. The second one was just a personal attack on SB and a suggestion that MS deals in patents any differently to other key players in the industry.

    At least Google do no evil.
