Rezension bezieht sich auf: Hard Drive: Bill Gates and the Making of the Microsoft Empire (Taschenbuch)
I felt that this is one of the best books i have ever read. This book is loaded with details describing his life from the time he was pulling all nighters at C-Cubed to working with BIG BLUE (IBM). It is extremly fascinating to know how he made all his money.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Hard Drive: Bill Gates and the Making of the Microsoft Empire (Taschenbuch)
The authors have done a pretty good job at guessing what the future might hold, as we look back from several years after its publication. (As some gifted souls have so insightfully noted, the computer industry does actually change fairly rapidly, thus a book from the early-mid 1990s might be sort of dated in 2000.) What is impressive is how well it's held up over the years.
The analysis of Gates' psychology, the corporate culture of Microsoft and its evolution, and the various spasms of its early years are all right on the money, and particularly interesting in light of the current DOJ proceedings. The material about Ballmer will be of interest to anyone keeping current with his rise in management at the company. It also paints an irresistable picture of the IBM that once was certain it could tell us all how we would use computers.
Strongly recommended.

4.0 von 5 Sternen History of Personal Computing, 5. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Hard Drive: Bill Gates and the Making of the Microsoft Empire (Taschenbuch)
I have read this book two years ago. This is the first book which gave me good picture of evolution of personal computing industry. Though it is Microsoft side of story most of the time but the side by side comparisions with other products of the time provide a broader view. One of the interesting thing about the book is that I can now visiaulize the development of computing industry for a year or two in advance. This book also clears many misconceptions regarding the initial microsoft, development of windows and personality of Bill Gates.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gates starts here, 28. Juni 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Hard Drive: Bill Gates and the Making of the Microsoft Empire (Taschenbuch)
A trenchant and direct account of Gates' beginnings and rise to power. Devoid of the gushiness and inaccuracies of other bios. Much better than Gates' own frothy PR pulp. If you want to get inside the head of the man who has ruled over the corporate IT landscape for since 1992, read this book. Good stuff!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good information but out of date, 20. Juni 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Hard Drive: Bill Gates and the Making of the Microsoft Empire (Taschenbuch)
This book has a 1992 copyright. Near the end mention is made of Word Perfect, which the authors say is still way out in front of Word.
I'm a Word Perfect fan and am concerned about the results of the well known predatory competitive tactics of Gates, since I've seen Word Perfect beat up on to the point where it is struggling to survive. If Word Perfect leaves the scene or is much diminished, that will be real loss to the consumer, because Word Perfect is substantially easier to use than Word. Also, Word Perfect has historically been much more user friendly re: tech support (free and toll free), while Microsoft, as usual, and true to its hardnosed style, doesn't answer its phone.
Because computer industry time works on an accelerated clock, a 1992 book is SERIOUSLY out of date. The book is good (though rather flat in its journalistic presentation), as far as it goes, but the ending is a disappointment when you realize how much is left unsaid.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Real vision, perserverance and intellectual ruthlessnes, 14. Mai 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Hard Drive: Bill Gates and the Making of the Microsoft Empire (Taschenbuch)
Great on-going story about the beginning of the software industry and how it became king over hardware. Have a completely different viewpoint of Gates and his team. Even though he is considered ruthless at the negotiating table his overall intellect and focused drive has to be admirable. Thoroughly enjoyed the book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen very inspiring story, 27. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Hard Drive: Bill Gates and the Making of the Microsoft Empire (Taschenbuch)
This book portrays an intensely driven person. He was born with talent and wealth, yet he did not rely on either of these to just get by. He pushed his talents to their limits. While still in gradeschool, he would pull all nighters programming. The picture of him sleeping on a table in the schools computer lab reminds me of Edison sleeping on the bench top in his lab. We have all benifitted from the increase in productivity that computers have brought to many types of work, and credit is due to Bill Gates and others like him that worked very hard to improve the quality of computing. This book reveals the intensity with which he works, and made me feel happy about his success.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amüsant und fesselnd., 20. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Hard Drive: Bill Gates and the Making of the Microsoft Empire (Taschenbuch)
Ein sehr unterhaltsames Buch, das viel über die Aufbruchstimmung und Faszination des PC-Zeitalters verrät und miterleben läßt.
PS: Nun ist mir auch klar warum so viele Bugs in Microsoft Produkte zu finden sind.
