In 1975 Gates dropped out of school to devote his life to the computers. He started a company called Microsoft the same year. He saw his chance, when anybody could buy a computer he also thought that anyone should be able to use them. Bill Gates and Microsoft made their first product, they developed the computer languade called BASIC and made it more advanced but still more simple.

The internet explorer monopoly issue

There has been alot of talk about Microsoft having a monopoly and are making it hard for other companies to grow. And all of this is true. Microsoft is a big company and almost have monopoly. In 1991 the Us government started investigating Microsoft and found that the company was so big that their was no room for competition in the computer buisness. In 1994 Microsoft promised to give the other computer companies in the computer buissness more oppertunities for competition. The same year a comany called Netscape realeses their browser called Navigater (A browser is the computer program that we use when we surf the word wide web on the internet). The following year microsoft realeses their own browser wich is called Internet Explorer. Internet explorer is inigrated in their operation system. And since the most computer users use microsofts operating system windows they can´t choose not too use it. When they did this the ministry of justice in the united states sued Microsoft becouse they broke their promise from 1994.
In 1998 the ministry of justice and 19 american states sues microsoft for using their monopoly too beat Netscape in the competition. And yesterday Microsoft was found guilty. Bill Gates have said yestarday that microsoft intend to keep on having Explorer integrated in their upcoming OS. And yesterday before the verdict came the share price of microsoft sunk very much, and Bill Gates lost a lot of money. The money he lost would have been almost 90 billions if hey were swedish crowns.
