I though I'd heard everything there was to hear about Bill Gates and Microsoft. The Time interview with Bill Gates added a nuanced deminsion of understanding to the legendary stories I'd heard about this man from my early days as a computer technician through my current life as a management consultant. Practical explanations which meshed with the traits of personality in Gate's conversation very credibly tied together a life's story that was amazing to listen to.
