END of An Era

 

You think some things will never end…you think your parents will live forever, that a relationship will never fade, that you have all the time in the world. And then reality hits. On 27.06.2008 that reality hit  again when Bill Gates officially ended his 33 year full-time job at Microsoft.

I grow learning in school on Commodore computers and few years later in High School using the first x86 with DOS and first 286 with Windows 3.1 then  I realized where DOS and Windows came from – this company called Microsoft. And that Bill Gates ran it. I became even more fascinated with computing, seeing what plans they had. Dealings with IBM, this new graphical interface that let you manipulate stuff as little pictures, making it easy for my mom to create docs and pictures, eventually OS/2 and Windows 3. This Gates guy seemed so incredibly smart and forward thinking. But back then I knew that something big was happening, Microsoft was at the center of it, and I wanted to be part of it.

My goal in life from that point was to work and get closer to Microsoft. I considered him then, and still do now, a visionary.
