The co-founder of the software giant, Microsoft, has died aged 65 after a battle with cancer. Paul Allen first established the company with Bill Gates before a fall out led to his eventual resignation from the board. He had many investments from his share of Microsoft’s fortune and was involved in sports, medial research and sailing. All-in-all, he had a good innings although 65 is young, especially for someone of Paul Allen’s means. His estimated fortune was worth $27 billion. It just goes to demonstrate the old adage that you can’t take it with you.
