Today 4 Apr 2015 is a special day for Microsoft; guess what? Forty years ago, the world's largest maker of software was nothing more than a startup, founded by two college dropouts named Bill Gates and Paul Allen. Attached 1978 Portrait show case them.
Now, Microsoft has more than 125,000 employees, a sprawling 8-million-square-foot campus outside Seattle and its principal products running on nearly 90 percent of the world's computers. It's the third-most valuable company in the world, behind only oil giant Exxon Mobil and longtime competitor Apple.
Microsoft celebrates its 40th anniversary and Gates, who served as chief executive officer for 25 years before stepping down in 2000. He reiterated his commitment to the vision he laid out four decades ago that software could empower the world.
