Abstract

This thesis is an overview of the life of William H. Gates, president and cofounder of Microsoft Corporation. This thesis discusses Gates' early life and experiences with computers, the formation and success of Microsoft and the success of Gates himself. Not only did Gates make himself successful with computer software, but his software helped make computers the useful, necessary machines they are today. Bill Gates is as much a symbol of the information age as the computer itself.
