In 1973, Gates went to Harvard University. Steve Ballmer lived in the same building and they became friends. Ballmer later became the president of Microsoft.

In 1974, the MITS company asked Gates and Allen to write the programming language for its Altair 8800, the first microcomputer.

It was a success and MITS gave them more work. In 1975, Gates and Allen moved to New Mexico and started Microsoft. The first few years were hard.

In 1979, they moved their company to Seattle. In 1980, the IBM company developed a computer for people to use at home.

Microsoft supplied the operating system for it. Gates and Allen made enough money from this to stay in business.
