Bill Gates

a) After finishing school in 1973, Bill went to Harvard, America`s most famous university. The
next year, he and Paul Allen wrote an operating program for the Altair, one of the world`s first
microcomputers. The two friends started Microsoft in 1975, and Gates left Harvard. Before
long, Microsoft was a major business success. Since then, the company has continued to
grow, producing most of the world`s leading PC software. One reason for his success is that
Gates has always been very ambitious and hardworking. This has not left him much time for a
personal life, but in 1994 he married Melinda French, a Microsoft employee, and in 1995 he
wrote a best- selling book, The Road Ahead.
b) His full name is William Henry Gates III, and he was born on 28 th October, 1995 in Seattle, USA
at school, Bill soon showed that he was very intelligent and especially good at Maths and
Science. His parents decided to send him to Lakeside, the private school where he first
began to use computers. 13 year old Bill Gates and his school friend Paul Allen were soon
spending all their time writing programs and learning about computers instead of doing their
school work.
c) Bill has mixed feelings about spending so much time running Microsoft. There are a lot of
experiences I haven`t had, but I do like my job, he says. When he does find time to relax,
he likes puzzles, golf and reading about science. For such a rich person, his life is simple and
he spends little on himself and his family. When it comes to helping others, though, Gates is
very generous. He has already given huge amounts of money to charity, and says that he
plans to give away almost all of his wealth when he retires.
d) Everyone has heard of Bill Gates, one of the richest and most successful people in the world.
Microsoft, the business he started with a friend in 1975, has become the world`s largest
