Paul Allen and the Bill Gates / Microsoft Link
teamed up with Gates that Microsoft was created.
Allen was born
on January 21, 1953 in Seattle and met Gates at
Lakeside prep school when they were both students
attending the school. Lakeside prep had recently
decided to acquaint its students with the world of
computers, but, since computers were extremely
expensive, had a fundraiser to purchase computer
time on a DEC PDP-10 owned by General Electric.
It was on this
computer that Gates, Allen, and a few other
Lakeside students discovered computing, and, soon
thereafter, programming. The young boys used up all
the computing time the school had purchased and
began falling behind in their classes.
