Immigrant Of The Week: Charles Simonyi

by Greg Siskind

IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: CHARLES SIMONYI - MS OFFICE'S FATHER AND SPACE TOURIST

Charles_simonyi If you typed a document using Microsoft Word today or sent an email using Outlook, you owe a little hat tip to the Hungarian-born Charles Simonyi who oversaw the creation of Microsoft's Office suite of applications. He earned a fortune at Microsoft and is now a billionaire. Simonyi is still in the business world and runs Intentional Software, a company he created in 2002. But he's also using his fortune for philanthropy and adventure. He has endowed professorships at Oxford and Stanford. And he has now visited space - twice! - as a tourist on the Russian Soyuz rocket.
