The New York Post: Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen dies at 65

The tech world has lost a visionary.

Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft MSFT, -1.80% , died Monday following complications from non-Hodgkins’s lymphoma. He was 65.

Earlier this month, Allen disclosed on his website that the cancer he successfully battled in 2009 returned.

“A lot has happened in medicine since I overcame this disease in 2009. My doctors are optimistic that I will see good results from the latest therapies, as am I,” Allen wrote at the time.

Allen, a Seattle native, founded Microsoft in 1975 with childhood friend Bill Gates and together they revolutionized the personal computer industry as Microsoft became the dominant software on computers during the 1980s and ‘90s — turning each of them into billionaires.
