The secret of Bill Gates success

Nice article about the early days of Microsoft and Bill’s Business Approach.

here are the few Extracts:

“it wasn’t just what Microsoft did, but what his rivals didn’t do that let Microsoft get ahead”

“They did not understand how to bring in people with business experience and people with engineering experience and put them together. They did not understand how to go around the world.”

“Most of our competitors were one-product wonders. “

“They would do their one product, but never get their engineering sorted out.”

“They did not think about software in this broad way. They did not think about tools or efficiency. They would therefore do one product, but would not renew it to get it to the next generation.”
