For this reason, his parents had a strong belief that Bill should be given public education. When he was 13 years old, his family got him admitted to Seattle Lakeside School, an elementary school. He was good in almost all subjects, but his ability to understand mathematics and science was very good. Along with this he also used to participate in plays in school.

A Seattle Computer Company at Lakeside School gave students computers to learn and students used to go to that company to learn computers in their free time. Soon Bill's interest in computers started increasing and he started spending more and more time on how computers work. He then created a "Tic-Tac-Tow" program in a Basic Computer language so that the computer running could play against the computer.

Bill met Paul Allen at Seattle Computer The company, who was two years senior (elder) to him. Both of them became good friends due to their computer's shared beliefs and thoughts, while in other things their views were not mixed at all. Paul Allen was very shy and calm. While Bill was completely different in his nature. Both spent most of their time in programming.

Irregularly, there used to be a debate between who is right and who is capable of running the Computer Lab of their school. And on the other hand, Gates and Allen had the facility of computers available in their school. The company stopped, providing them the computers to learn because both of them spent all of their time in the lab learning computers. The computers of the company were infected as both of them had worked on it in various ways. After this ban, both of them were again allowed to come to the lab on the condition that they would remove ERROR from PROGRAM. At the same time, Gates created another software program which was used in the school's Time Schedule.

In 1970, at the age of 15, he moved towards Bill Business with his best friend Paul Allen. He created a "Traf-O-Data" program that monitored Seattle City's traffic pattern and tried to improve it. And he got $ 20,000 for this effort, which was his first earning.

Gates and Allen wanted to open a company themselves, but Bill Gates’ parents wanted him to complete his school and college studies and become a lawyer first. Bill Gates showed his intelligence by scoring 1590 out of 1600 in the 1973 SAT Exam (Intellectual Achievement) at Lakeside School.

Success Story of Bill Gates – Bill Gates’ launched Career

Gates' parents got Bill's admission at Harvard University thinking he would make his career in Law, but looking at his childhood days, he seemed to spend most of his time in a computer lab instead of a class because he was interested in that only and wanted to make Career in that.

He also manages to spend some of his time in studies and manages to pass the examination with good marks.
Bill's contact with Paul Allen was largely absent because Paul went to another Washington State University to study. From where he left college after two years and shifted to Paul Allen, Boston, where he started working in a company called Honeywell.

In the summer of 1974, Bill also joined the Honeywell Company with Allen. During this time Allen also showed Gates a part of a very famous Electronic Magazine, based on an article from the Altair 8800 Mini Computer KIT.

Both were happy about the possibility that if it became a computer, then everyone in the world would be able to use it easily and make their work easier. Then a small company created Altair, which is also in New Mexico, also known as MITS.

Gates and Allen contacted a company and announced that they were working on a program of Basic Software, which would run Altair Computer. But in reality, they did not have any Altair on which they could run the code. But they wanted to know whether the MITS Company was interested in making such software.

MITS and its President ED-Robert asked the two to showcase the codes they had made. Gates and Allen requested the President of MITS to let them go to Harvard Lab to write software programs for two months. Allen then went on to test the software in MITS at ALBUQUERQUE. The software, which did not have Use in any ALTAIR Computer till that time because it was not in such a condition to function properly.

MITS Company hired Allen to work at the Company. Bill also left Harvard University to work with him, which added to the distraction of his parents. In 1975, Gates and Allen opened a company of Micro-Software in the partnership that would create Micro Computers and Software.

In February 1976, Bill wrote a letter to those interested in computers, saying that "using software without buying it would mean stopping a new software before it is made". Not only this, the courage of developers would be broken even when some people make Pirated Software (Copy of Real Software). Then the developers think that we have wasted our important time due to no reason and made people quality software.

Bill's letter had no effect on the people, yet Bill had full faith in this fact. They were accused unfairly that their methods of running the business was wrong for which Bill Gates defended himself from this blame by making his weakness the Greatest Strength.

Bill had a very fierce relationship with the President of the MITS, and at times he had a quarrel due to such a relationship. Along with this, there was often a conflict between Bill and Robert about the way of running software development and business. And Robert saw Bill as impaired and obnoxious.

After Robert moved to Georgia, Bill and Allen sued the new owner of MITS to obtain the rights to the software created for Altair.

Due to Bill's hard work and dedication, the company's growth was increasing day by day like a company making hardware like Apple, Intel and IBM. Bill would constantly take feedback from people about the application made by Microsoft and change the apps according to the needs of the people. And his mother used to go with him many times in this work. His mother Mary was one of the most respected individuals and had a very good relationship with his IBM Board Members.
