From 1995 to 2009, he held the title of the richest person in the world all but four of those years, and held it consistently from 2014–July 2017, with an estimated net worth of US.9 billion as of October 2017.His father was a prominent lawyer, and his mother served on the board of directors for First Interstate Banc System and the United Way.One of these systems was a PDP-10 belonging to Computer Center Corporation (CCC), which banned four Lakeside students – Gates, Paul Allen, Ric Weiland, and Kent Evans – for the summer after it caught them exploiting bugs in the operating system to obtain free computer time.

After his administrators became aware of his programming abilities, Gates wrote the school's computer program to schedule students in classes.

Gates oversaw the business details, but continued to write code as well.

In the first five years, Gates personally reviewed every line of code the company shipped, and often rewrote parts of it as he saw fit.

In February 1976, Gates wrote an Open Letter to Hobbyists in the MITS newsletter in which he asserted that more than 90 percent of the users of Microsoft Altair BASIC had not paid Microsoft for it and by doing so the Altair "hobby market" was in danger of eliminating the incentive for any professional developers to produce, distribute, and maintain high-quality software.

This letter was unpopular with many computer hobbyists, but Gates persisted in his belief that software developers should be able to demand payment.
