FleshEatingZipper Says: In their college years, Bill Gates and Paul Allen founded an outfit in the dusty hills of Albuquerque called Micro-Soft. They were to be the first to provide operating systems such as BASIC and FORTRAN to the first minicomputers. Before Apple and Commodore, home computing required a mail-order kit and plenty of solder. As they became more successful, getting into IBM’s first PC and creating an industry with their name on it, the two founders eventually fell out of alignment and a harsh Gates made Allen miserable. While we know Gates’ story because of Microsoft’s success, Allen’s has always been a bit elusive. Here, we see the whole thing from his perspective.
