XENUMX died of cancer by Paul Allen, Microsoft co-founder

Ο συνιδρυτής της Microsoft, Paul Allen, πέθανε σε ηλικία 65 ετών λόγω επιπλοκών από λέμφωμα. Ο πρωτοπόρος της he had been dealing with cancer for years, he had been treated for 2009, but unfortunately the disease came back with metastases.

They were together with Bill Gates the creators of the Microsoft company. On his way to the company he experienced the enviable deal that would make Microsoft a tech giant. He led the company to buy Quick and Dirty Operating by Tim Paterson in 1980, helping his company land a deal to supply PC-DOS for IBM's first computers. He was an ordinary employee until 1982, and then remained on the company's board of directors until 2000. Since then he has held the position of executive director.

We read from wikipedia: According to some legend (which has βάση), η μεγαλύτερη κατασκευάστρια υπολογιστών της εποχής, η IBM, αποφάσισε να κατασκευάσει και να παρουσιάσει στο ευρύ κοινό ένα προσωπικό υπολογιστή. Για το σκοπό αυτό χρειαζόταν ένα λειτουργικό σύστημα. Απευθύνθηκε, όπως ήταν φυσικό, στον Κίλνταλ και στην εταιρεία του, αλλά, σύμφωνα με το θρύλο, η Ντόροθι ήταν έτοιμη για ένα ταξίδι σε κάποιο εξωτικό νησί μαζί με το σύζυγό της και γνωστοποίησαν στην IBM ότι συνεννοήσεις μεταξύ τους θα μπορούσαν να αρχίσουν μόνο μετά από δεκαπέντε ημέρες. Η IBM, αγανακτισμένη από τη συμπεριφορά των Κίλνταλ, απευθύνεται στην εταιρεία των Gates και Allen (γνωστής τότε ως Micro-Soft) και ζητά την ανάπτυξη λειτουργικού για τον υπολογιστή της. Οι partners, after feverish efforts, deliver to IBM the operating system, which the company named PC-DOS. The success of the IBM PC was huge, and naturally this gave a huge boost to Microsoft, who, having the precedent of making BASIC exclusive to MITS, made sure to keep the rights to DOS by not granting exclusivity to IBM. Thus, when the "clones" of the IBM PC appeared, Microsoft was able to supply manufacturers with an operating system (with some differences from those of PC-DOS), which it named MS-DOS (an acronym for the words MicroSoft Disk Operating System ). This action put the company on a path of rapid growth, which has never been interrupted until today.

He was an inventor with 43 US patents under his name and was one of the world's leading investors in ς. Υποστήριξε μεμονωμένα το SpaceShipOne του Burt Rutan, ίδρυσε την εταιρία διαστημικών μεταφορών Stratolaunch Systems και ξεκίνησε τη Viulcan Aerospace για να κάνει το διαστημικό ταξίδι πιο προσιτό. Έχει μετοχές στις Charter and Ticketmaster as well as numerous start-ups.

It has also expanded far beyond the normal technological sphere. He founded the Allen Institutes for Artificial Intelligence, Brain Science and Cell Science to Promote Information Technology and Medicine and the Paul G. Allen Frontiers Group for cutting-edge biotechnology. He has supported initiatives on the environment and against the ebola virus.

It is too early to say that Allen's death will affect his many organizations. There is no doubt that they will continue to function for a long time. And as said Steve Ballmer in a tribute, Allen was a "wonderful, bright and inspiring person." The technological world will be poorer without it.
