Microsoft is one of the most insanely successful companies ever and at the heart of it was Bill Gates. In this 2008 documentary British journalist and broadcaster Fiona Bruce is given rare and exclusive access to the software guru and business magnate as he prepares to step down as CEO of the company.
The Windows operating system became the standard in home computing just as computers were becoming mainstream in the mid 1980’s. With this brought fame and fortune but Bill has always been selective about his public appearances and generally stays off the radar. So the documentary "Bill Gates: How a Geek Changed the World" is one of the few times that the man himself tells us about his life in Microsoft. As well as talking about the tech giant, Gates also talks about his plans going forward which chiefly consist of running the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the worlds largest charitable foundation.
Yes if you are interested in the history of Microsoft and finding out a bit more about Bill Gates on a personal level this documentary is a must watch.
