Bill was raised in Seattle by his father William H. Gates Sr., and mother Mary Maxwell Gates who died in 1994; he has two sisters named Kristianne and Libby. His father is a former lawyer while his mother was on the board of directors for First Interstate BancSystem. As Bill was smaller than most other children, he was bullied at elementary school and spent most of his free time in his room, ‘thinking’ as he explained it to his mother.
He wrote his first software program at the age of 13 and soon began studying programming, the GE system in BASIC; a game of tic-tac-toe was one of his first programs, which allowed the students to play the game against the computer. He began attending Harvard College after matriculation in 1973, but quit two years later as he wanted to focus on programming.
Bill and his friend Paul Allen started working together for Micro Instrumentation and Telemetry Systems (MITS), creating the interpreter for their Altair 8800 computer which was called Altair BASIC, while Bill and Alan called their partnership “Micro-Soft”, a mix of “microcomputer” and “software”. “Microsoft” was officially created in 1976, when they became independent of MITS.
In July 1980, they began working with IBM, who asked Bill to make an operating system for them after they could not do a deal with Digital Research (DRI), and for them Bill created the 86-DOS. It was this job that made Microsoft famous, and led to it becoming the world’s leading software company. The first Microsoft Windows operating system was launched on 20 November 1985.
Since he left his full-time day-to-day operations at Microsoft, Bill has focused on his philanthropic work and other projects. He has donated money to charity organizations which help underprivileged children, to organizations which help fight climate change and to many others. He is the founder of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which is the world’s wealthiest charitable foundation, and one of the co-founders of The Giving Pledge, with Warren Buffett among many other billionaires.
He married his wife Melinda French on 1 January 1994 on a golf course on the Hawaiian island of Lanai.
