All of us use personal computers or laptops. Ever thought how your computer would have looked like without Microsoft Windows in it? Such has been the stronghold of Microsoft on the personal computer software market that many of us are not even aware of the other players in the software market. Starting from school projects to official presentations all of us are highly dependent on the applications developed by Microsoft. All these facilities that we are enjoying today have been made possible by the continuous endeavours of Bill Gates. He co-founded Microsoft with Paul Allen in 1975. Every success story has its share of hardships and the story of Gates was no exception. He braved all the hurdles in his path and today we know him not only as the founder and Technology Advisor of Microsoft but also as the richest person in the world.
Bill Gates is one such person who has won the hearts of millions of people around the globe. While his creations ease our everyday lives, the social work done by him through his two charities, ‘Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’ and The Giving Pledge’ serve the less privileged ones. Undoubtedly he is an inspiration for each us. Read on to see Gates inspiring you in his own words.
