itwbennett writes “Bill Gates was guilty of ‘mercenary opportunism’ when he schemed with Steve Ballmer to dilute Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s equity in the company while Allen was recovering from Hodgkin’s disease according to Allen. In his upcoming autobiography, ‘Idea Man,’ which is excerpted in Vanity Fair, Allen paints a portrait of Gates as brilliant, focused, driven … and ruthless. According to Allen, Gates in the early days twice sought larger equity in the company on the grounds that he ‘did more.’ Allen says he acquiesced each time, both because he understood his partner’s reasoning and to avoid major conflict.”
