He read the World Book Encyclopedia by the time he was nine. He felt different than all the other kids because he was left handed.

Bill Gates gave more than half his fortune to projects and scholarships. He married Melinda French in 1994. He had three kids Jennifer, Rory, and Phoebe. He had to be responsible for a virus while working with PDP-10 but he failed so he had to stay away from computers for a year.

Personal Response

Meeting Bill Gates would have been an interesting experience because he seems like a very nice guy. If I could ask Bill Gates a question I would ask how exactly do you program a game. This person's life has inspired me to look into computers.
