Bill Gates poses with Windows 3.0, the 1990 operating system that introduced "control-alt-delete" to Windows.Microsoft ArchiveBill Gates, the Microsoft co-founder and the world's richest man, is not usually one to look back.

As he did some years ago, Gates pinned the blame on the IBM engineers responsible for the IBM PC keyboard at the time.
