Paul Allen portrays Bill Gates as a sarcastic bully

Posted on Thursday, March 31 2011 @ 20:32:21 CEST by

Bit Tech reports Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has written a memoir called Idea Man: a Memior. The book will go on sale next month, and according to Vanity Fair it doesn't paint a rosy picture of Bill Gates.
An extract of the book, called Idea Man: a Memoir, was just published by Vanity Fair. It paints a less than rosy picture of Gates, saying he tried to 'force his founding partner out of the firm and to cut his share in the company as he was recovering from cancer.'

The two met at high school in 1968, where Allen describes his first impressions of Gates as 'really competitive; he wanted to show you how smart he was. And he was really, really persistent.'

Perhaps the most damning claim was that when Allen returned from sick leave with Hodgkin's lymphoma, he found Gates and current Microsoft boss Steve Ballmer discussing ways of reducing his stake in the company.
