Microsoft co-founder slams Bill Gates in his new book
Washington: Bill Gates plotted to grab Microsoft shares from his cancer-stricken business partner Paul Allen, the software firm's co-founder has claimed in a new memoir.

Painting a unfavorable view of Gates and his rise to the pinnacle of global business, Allen details Gates' 1982 scheme "to rip me off," just as Microsoft was becoming a computing powerhouse with its MS-DOS operating system.

In an excerpt from his new memoir "Idea Man", published today by Vanity Fair magazine, Allen describes Gates, the world's second richest man with a USD 56 billion fortune, as brilliant but a schemer from early days to control their firm.

The book, Allen's take on the company's early history, confirms the long-reported tensions between the two partners.

In early 1975, after a test on an early Altair microcomputer proved their BASIC program, they decided to form a partnership: MicroSoft.
