How Bill Gates Beat Gary Kildall

leave a comment »

Robert Scoble has created three video interviews with Tom Rolander (and a few other folks) dealing with early PC industry history. Who is Tom Rolander? He’s the guy who was flying with Gary Kildall when IBM came calling. The end of the story is that Microsoft got the OS deal with IBM. The video series fills in some of the blanks 🙂 Aren’t familiar with this story? You should read: Hard Drive

A couple other good tech history books are:
Nerds 2.0.1 and
Dealers of Lightning
