Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen dies of cancer complications at 65

Allen left Microsoft in 1983, before the company became a corporate juggernaut, following a dispute with Gates, but his share of their original partnership allowed him to spend the rest of his life and billions of dollars on yachts, art, rock music, sports teams, brain research and real estate.
Current Microsoft Chief Executive Satya Nadella on Monday called him a “quiet and persistent” man who changed the world.
Allen, the owner of 42 US patents, liked to cast himself as a technology visionary who drove Microsoft’s early success and saw the future of connected computing long before the Internet.
