    Yey.. found it again..

    It was 1983 "Teen Beat" supposidly (now that'd be fun.. a mag on how to beat teens..)

    But it says here http://www.snopes.com/photos/people/gates.asp that it is not..
    These images are actually publicity photos taken of the then 30-year-old Bill Gates coincident with the initial release of Microsoft Windows in 1985. The Corbis photo archive identifies their depiction thusly: "Bill Gates, CEO of Microsoft, reclines on his desk in his office soon after the release of Windows 1.0. 1985 Bellevue, Washington, USA."
    And snopes.com is usualy right...

    soon after the release of Windows 1.0
    Now that was a criminal offence (felony)...................I have v2.03 running on an HP Vectra V12, which the garbage men kindly delivered to my house.

    It seriously sucks compared to Norton Commander and Apple of the same era

    Windoze did not really get running until v3.0
