I believe if Im correct the man never graduated college and look how far he has gone. One of the best success stories ever in my opinion!
he did graduate but only 30 years after he orginally left. microsoft is big because they were around at the right time. plus Mr Gates worked incredibly hard at microsoft when it first began and made alot of right decisions such as pretty much giving away his OS to Sir Alan Sugar for Amstrad. he got his product out there and he got it out fast then he cranked up the prices. alot of people hate microsoft because of their business tactics like when netscape was taking over the market around the internet bill gates prioritized internet explorer as the companys number one concern. then he bundled it free in every OS package that he sold meaning that a company could either buy an internet browser or get one free with thier OS. companys that built computers had a lot of pressure put on them not to bundle netscape in with the packages they sold. good stuff for microsoft but crap for other people which is why the US of A Government took them to court and sued them
