Famous Personalities(Computer Industry)

Hi Friends! I got these in a forwarded mail, thought i would share them with you..

1) Tim Berners Lee - Founder of the "World Wide Web"

2) Picture taken when Microsoft was started.
Bill Gates is the boy marked with a box.

3) Steve Woznaik(sitting) and Steve Jobs of Apple Computers.

He was three months late in filing a name for the business because he didn't get
any better name for his new company.

So oneday he told to the staff: "If I'll not get better name by 5 o'clock today, our
company's name will be anything he likes..."

so at 5 o'clock nobody came up with better name, and he was eating APPLE at that time....

so he kept the name of the company as "Apple Computers"

4) Bill Hewlett(L) and Dave Packard(R) of HP.

Behind them in the picture is the famous HP Garage.

Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard tossed a coin to decide whether the company
they founded would be called Hewlett-Packard or Packard-Hewlett.

And the winner was NOT Bill... the winner was Dave.

5) Ken Thompson (L)and Dennis Ritchie(R) ,creators of UNIX.

Dennis Ritchie improved on the B programming language and called it 'New B'.

B was created by Ken Thompson as a revision of the Bon programming language
(named after his wife Bonnie).

He later called it C.

6) Larry Page(L) and Sergey Brin(R), founders of Google.

Google was originally named 'Googol'.

After founders (Stanford graduates) Sergey Brin and Larry Page presented
their project to an angel investor...

they received a cheque made out to "Google" !...

So they kept name as GOOGLE.

7) Gordon Moore(L) and Bob Noyce(R) ,founders of Intel.

Bob Noyce and Gordon Moore wanted to name their new company 'Moore Noyce'.

But that was already trademarked by a hotel chain...

So they had to settle for an acronym of INTegrated ELectronics... "INTEL".

8) Andreas Bechtolsheim , Bill Joy, Scott Mc Nealy and Vinod Khosla
of SUN (StanfordUniversity Network) MicroSystems.

Founded by four Stanford University buddies.

Andreas Bechtolsheim built a microcomputer;

Vinod Khosla recruited him;

Scott McNealy to manufacture computers based on it;

and Bill Joy to develop a UNIX-based OS for the computer...

SUN is the acronym for Stanford University Network .

9) Linus Torvalds of Linux Operating System Linus Torvalds originally used the Minix OS
on his system which he replaced by his OS.

Hence the working name was Linux (Linus' Minix).
He thought the name to be too egotistical and planned to name it Freax (free + freak + x).

His friend Ari Lemmk encouraged Linus to upload it to a network so it could be easily downloaded.

Ari gave Linus a directory called linux on his FTP server, as he did not like the name Freax.

Linus like that directory name and he kept the name of his new OS to LINUX...

10) Picture taken when INFOSYS was started.
This picture was found in the album of the clerk who took this picture...

The picture was with that clerk only because it was his birthday and he just told everyone to stand together at one place to take a picture.

He borrowed a camera from his friend and as he cannot tell any of his boss to take pic, he took pic by himself... even though it was his birthday!!
