Bill Gates and Paul Allen Recreate Iconic 1981 Microsoft Photo

Hi everyone,

An important moment in life and history.

-> Bill Gates and Paul Allen Recreate Iconic 1981 Microsoft Photo
Back in 1981, Bill Gates and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen pulled of an audacious feat: they licensed MS-DOS to IBM, but in a deal that saw them retain entire control of the software. To mark the occasion, the pair were photographed amid a sea of contemporary computers—and now they've recreated the image.

The picture, taken at Seattle's Living Computer Museum—in fact founded by Allen—shows the pair surrounded by the exact same hardware. Nice to see that Gates still looks a little scruffy after all this time.
Worth reading comments as well.

Back to this old thread to post a few other words and a new picture.

Bill Gates

It’s great to see students learning to embrace failure.
In the summer of 1972, Paul Allen and I started a company called Traf-O-Data.
Even though Traf-O-Data didn’t go anywhere, we used what we’d learned to build our next company.



I'd never heard abouth this "Traf-O-Data".
