If Bill Gates died tomorrow, not wishing to tempt fate, his passing would be on the front of just about every newspaper in every country around the world. However, Paul Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft with Bill Gates, has died and there is hardly a mention of him. Bill Gates was the software side of the partnership while Paul was the hardware side. He is probably the man most responsible for Microsoft reaching its goal of a computer in every home. He was also the man happy to sit in the background while Bill Gates basked in the limelight. He died from complications of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma yesterday at the age of 65.
