In 1980, Gates and Allen launched an operating system called MS-DOS to IBM, the world’s largest computer maker. Microsoft started selling its computer operating systems to major other companies. Thus this company was able to gain a prominent position in the software field. Microsoft was the dominant provider of computer operating software and as a result, his personal computer market started to boom. Microsoft Word and Excel programs have become the industry’s standard.
Presidential Medal of Freedom was awarded to both Bill and Melinda Gates by President Obama in 2016 for their Foundation’s charitable work.
