Microsoft's co-founders hacked computer to meet girls while at school
In a new interview, Bill Gates discusses the 'Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation', Microsoft, and other aspects of his life. He also drops an anecdote about how himself and Paul Allen, Microsoft's co-founders, apparently hacked the computer at Lakeside School.
According to Gates, he and Allen hacked the computer for the mischievous purpose of enrolling Gates into classes, where he would be the only male student, giving him a chance to meet girls. The only drawback to this plan was that Gates was too "inept" to pluck up more than "a little bit" of courage - ending the venture in failure.
