Jack Schofield. "Atari, the golden years revisited". The Guardian, 23 de agosto de 2008 https://www.theguardian.com/technology/blog/2008/aug/23/atarithegoldenyearsrevisit "Atari had contracted with a young programmer named Bill Gates to modify a BASIC compiler that he had for another system to be used on the 800. After that project stalled for over a year Al [Miller] was called upon to replace him with another developer. So, while Al is the only person I know ever to have fired Bill Gates, I suspect that rather than work on Atari BASIC, Gates was spending all his time on DOS* for IBM."
