Bill Gates was born in Seattle, Washington in 1955. His interest in computers began when he was in year eight, and his school started allocating computer time to the students. Gates took an interest in programming and wrote his first program on that school machine. From there he flourished, and spent time working for the Computer Center Corporation (CCC) with three fellow classmates. Gates worked with the CCC until it went out of business in 1970, and he then worked for Information Sciences Inc. the following year.

When he was seventeen, Gates and his friend Paul Allen formed a venture called Traf-O-Data. Gates graduated high school in 1973 with a SAT score of 1590, which was equivalent to an IQ of 170 – roughly one in a million level.

In 1975, Gates and Allen decided they wanted to start their own computer company. Later that year they began work with Micro Instrumentation and Telemetry Systems (MITS), and together formed a partnership that they named Micro-Soft. They dropped the hyphen in 1976, and by the end of that year Microsoft had become a company independent of MITS.

In 1980, IBM approached Microsoft about adapting an operating system for the PC. Microsoft did this for a one-off fee of $50,000 and insisted that Microsoft would keep the copyright on the operating system, believing other vendors would want a clone of the system. This proved to be correct and Microsoft soon became a major player in the industry, then – on November 20, 1985 – Microsoft launched its first version of Microsoft Windows.

Gates married Melinda French on January 1, 1994, and have three children together. Gates was number one on the "Forbes 400" list from 1993 through to 2007 and number one on Forbes list of "The World's Richest People" from 1995 to 2007. He currently has a net worth of US$58 billion, but at one point his wealth briefly surpassed $101 billion.
