netbuzz writes "Sunday marks the 25th anniversary of Microsoft’s initial public stock offering. While the undertaking was a spectacular success for the company from a financial standpoint and made him fabulously wealthy, then-30-year-old Bill Gates would just as soon have continued to go about his business in private, he told a reporter at the time.
