This work offers a summary of the book "HARD DRIVE: Bill Gates and the Making of the Microsoft Empire" by James Wallace and Jim Erickson. In this revealing portray of America's youngest millionaire, two investigative reporters relate the successful career of Microsoft founder Bill Gates. In 1968, this thirteen-year-old computer hacker formed a student group dedicated to finding ways to make money using computers.
By the age of 17, Bill Gates sold his first program. He later developed a series of personal-computer software applications and operating systems. In 1975, he co-founded Microsoft. Bill Gates now heads the biggest software, services and Internet technologies company in the world. Based on interviews with childhood friends, employees and business rivals, Hard Drive recounts the true story behind the rise of this genius who transformed the computer industry: Microsoft's complex relationships with industry giants Apple, Xerox and IBM, the company's successes and failures, the investigations by the Federal Trade Commission.
Wallace and Erickson also analyze the rough side of Gates's personality, which earned him the nickname "The Silicon Bully". Peppered with dozens of anecdotes, Hard Drive offers a well-researched and entertaining biography of "Chairman Bill", the most feared player in the computer industry.
