William Henry Gates the third was born on October 28, 1955.

He is one of the world’s richest people and perhaps the most successful businessman ever.

He co-founded the software giant Microsoft and turned it into the world’s largest software company.

He is the best-known entrepreneur of the PC revolution. He has also written two best-selling books and started his own charity with his wife.

Gates was fascinated with electronics from a young age. In 1975, he read about a small technology company. He contacted them to see if they were interested in a computer program he had written. This led to the creation of Microsoft.

Gates later struck a deal with IBM that put Microsoft’s Windows on IBM computers. This deal made Microsoft a major player in the IT industry.

Gates was in charge at Microsoft from 1975 until 2006.
