Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose. (Bill Gates)
The position of power that Microsoft enjoys today is the culmination of a business strategy that Bill Gates and his partner Paul Allen formulated many years ago when both were still in their 20s. The key to that success resides in a combination of factors, including the dazzling technical brilliance of the early Microsoft programmers, the enormous energy and ferocious competitiveness of Gates himself, and his unique vision of how the PC revolution could be brought about and the role that Microsoft could play in it. It’s easy to put Microsoft’s success down to one extraordinary piece of good luck – securing the contract to supply IBM with the operating system for its fi rst PC. But there was more than just luck involved. Bill Gates understood the significance of the deal. He knew that an operating system providing a common platform could change the history of personal computing. He worked tirelessly for more than six months to ensure that the opportunity, when it came, would fall to Microsoft. In this way he gave luck a helping hand.
