I love reading about the successes, failures, and twists along the road of a success story. Paul Allen, Bill Gates, and the creation of Microsoft is one of those stories.
Particularly in the first half of the story, it's fascinating to see the drive and determination that these two men (and their employees) had. It wasn't their talent, but their perserverence, that put them where they are today.
It wasn't an easy road. It wasn't a clean road. As you'll see from the article, there were disagreements, bad decisions, and regrets. But in the end, their road was made for walking.
