Bill Gates was born on 28 Oct 1955 in suburb of the Washington United States. His full name is William Henry Gates. Being a child he had great interest in computers. The computers were not that advanced as they are now. At the age of 13 he had learned the skills in programming. He would improve the software programs of others and sell them in the market. He had friendship with Paul Allen, who was also interested in computers.
They both were studying in Harvard University. But the love of computers made them to quit studies in half way. Their project was to build a computer language for the running of the computers easy. Their hard work paid off and they made a basic language for computers. This in the end made computer possible to become common and easily in everyone’s reach.
After this they moved to New Mexico, where they laid the foundation of the “Microsoft Corporation” in 1978. Through this they wanted to make different software. This field had a huge demand because use of personal computer was increasing tremendously. Hardware was available in large quantity but shortage of software. At last they were able to create software that was much needed for computers.
Inspired by this success IBM invited him to create an operating system. Here Bill Gates intelligence, dedication and hard work had shown miracles to create the operating system. This operating system was named as MS-DOS and as a result IBM earned massive profits.

Due to some reasons Paul Allen separated and Gates continued to his journey alone. He shortly made software for business world and entertainment to sell these to IBM and other computer companies. As a result of this his income increased amazingly.
In 1984 Microsoft Company’s business of 100 million dollars doubled in two years. Companies shares were started to sell in stock exchanges. In 1994 business reached to $2 billion. This only in one year touched $10 billion. The world has not seen such an increase in income and Bill Gates became the first in the list of the richest people.
The world of computer has been feasible due to software. Software is the back bone of hardware. Otherwise computer hardware would be insignificant. This change has revolutionized the entire scenario. These changes would not be possible without the struggles of Bill Gate.
