Netflix has published the first trailer for its upcoming docuseries about Microsoft founder Bill Gates. The show will be a three-part documentary on the iconic computer industry figure, billionaire, and philanthropist.

Inside Bill's Brain: Decoding Bill Gates was created by acclaimed Academy Award-winning director Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, He Named Me Malala). The docuseries explores Bill Gates' life story and is said to be an "in-depth and unfiltered," production which uses a combination of archival and newly shot footage.

In the new clips and interviews with Guggenheim we can gain an insight both the trivial and meaningful aspects of Gates' life. For example, we learn that Gates' favourite food is the hamburger, and how he pursues unique solutions to some of the world's most complex problems (energy, climate change, disease eradication).

At the time of the making of the documentary, Gates is obviously aware of getting older and his biggest fear is his brain deteriorating. However, to those that know him now, he is still adept at multi-processing complex, even seemingly chaotic, information.

Some may be surprised to see that Gates currently works in an largely analogue way: we see him with working with whiteboards, and stacks of paper on light tables, looking through large ringbinder files, as well as sometimes peering at a laptop.

Inside Bill's Brain: Decoding Bill Gates will arrive on Netflix globally, on 20th September.

Definitely give that a watch :)
Ooooh, will definitely watch. Always liked what he tried to achieve with Microsoft from a software point of view, but he was constantly distracted by lawsuits. Some of his philanthropy is questionable
As a old guy ( i was with DOS until i changed to WIN 98 )
I have always had mixed feelings about Bill Gates, i do look upon windows products as the decease i have chosen to live with, just like i do with Android and being a Danish national.
But both Bill and a lot of other rich people could do a lot better, and i would prefer if they was more nice with their companies than their philanthropic endeavours.

And Bill being Bill, i really wish there was people i could vote on that would do something about people like that,,,,, i know politics, but Bill are so big that by nature alone he become politic too.
I've been in IT from before PC's. My working life revolved around Dos and it's successors. I have to watch this.

Well, when the alternative is Windows 10… Even Bill knows that. ;)
