What did Bill Gates invent?


Bill Gates, along with his friend Paul Allen, invented the company Microsoft. Gates left Harvard University to create the company in 1975, and their plans were to create software for personal computers.

Microsoft became famous over the years for developing a computer operating system called Windows that is now used in a huge number of computers worldwide. Microsoft was also the company that originally licensed the operating system MS-DOS. His company earned a fortune from licensing this system. Microsoft announced the next-generation operating system Windows on Nov. 10, 1983. Bill Gates actually purchased the rights for the original operating system DOS from the company Seattle Company Products. He then modified the name to “MS-DOS” after his company. Gates then licensed the company to IBM so it could use it on its new personal computer. In 1987, Bill Gates became the youngest billionaire ever at the age of 31 due to the success of Microsoft. Microsoft has developed several versions of Windows since the software was first released, including Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. The company also created popular software for word processing such as Microsoft Word. It created programs for other office applications as well, such as Microsoft Excel.
