BIGGEST DECISIONS OF THE MODERN HISTORY THAT CHANGED THE WORLD FOREVER PART-1

1. BILL GATES CUNNING DECISION OF NOT GIVING FULL RIGHTS OF WINDOWS TO IBM

These were the years when Microsoft was just getting started and personal computers were a new thing that very few knew about. People like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs clearly knew the potential of these computers and hence went with the idea of portable ones in the form of personal computers.

Sooner Microsoft’s Windows OS took off and gained a lot of popularity, and in accordance with the popularity Bill Gates was doing new and very important deals with other multinational companies, for the development of Microsoft. One such deal was the ‘IBM patent deal’ where Bill Gates made Windows the default OS in IBM machines.
But IBM wanted to take full control of the OS by fully owning the rights but Bill Gates denied and did not give the full ownership and distribution rights of the Windows OS and kept the distribution rights with himself.

This was the decision that is regarded as the best one is in history because since then Microsoft has sold millions of copies of Windows and made billions of dollars, if things went differently in that meeting all the money and success would have gone to IBM and not Microsoft.


2. JAPAN TO ACCEPT DEFEAT IN WORLD WAR II

During World War II Japan was in a hurry and wanted to do so much more than what it was capable of. Japan was one of the fierce enemies of the USA and its allies. Japan in spite of being a weak military power didn’t want to make an agreement to surrender but the USA became desperate about it and dropped the only 2 nuclear bombs ever used in a war.

The first nuclear bomb was dropped on the city of Hiroshima where approximately 80,000 people died and a few thousand more died from their injuries and burns and radiation.
Three days later another nuclear bomb was dropped on the city of Nagasaki killing nearly 40,000 people. And as a result of that few days later Japan announced its surrender.
These cities were chosen on purpose as Hiroshima was the biggest military hub of Japan. The USA wanted to destroy Japan’s ability to fight the war. And this dropping of nuclear bombs marks the end of the war for Japan and for everybody else.
World War II was over with 2 nuclear bombs.


3. USA BACKING OUT OF THE MISSILE CRISIS OF THE CUBA

Cold War was in the era when not a single firearm was used in the war. It was mainly fought on the basis of technology and intelligence, the two competing countries made great advancements in technology to prove themselves superior to the other. And in the end, we all know who won with what ideology.
In the end, a capitalist society became the forefront of a superpower, during the Cold War, and after that many countries adopted this ideology, and fair enough they even succeeded

Tensions rose to all-time highest when USSR wanted to use nuclear warheads to stop the USA from gaining control of other areas in order to do its expansion. As a consequence of that, USSR started shipping loads of missiles and nuclear bombs into Cuba, the neighboring country of the USA, and made everything ready if the USA didn’t back out of the war.
It was a four-day tensioned environment which the world watched.

It was left on the USA if they wanted to continue the Cold War with nuclear warheads but they chose not to. If they would have gone head-to-head then the world would have been a very different place now and people would have been different in many other ways.

Those four days are regarded as the most important days that saved mankind from a possible extension in the late 20th century, this all happened because countries wanted to suppress supremacy over others.
This incident is the closest mankind has come to nuclear war or we can say abolishment of humanity.


4. HUMANS LANDING ON THE SURFACE OF 🌒

“One small step for man, a giant leap for mankind” these were the first words that came back from the surface of the moon, said by none other than Neil Alden Armstrong.
The moon landing was the biggest event of 20th-century history. It was the culmination of determination and perseverance of the scientists that took us there. This shows the ability of what a person can do if their only mission is to succeed and to be great at it.

The moon landings were the part of Cold War with the USSR, it was believed that whoever wins the space race will win the war but this alone did not decide the fate of the war. In fact, USSR was the one who sent the first satellite and first-person into space but it was the USA who won the moon race.
The story of how we landed on the surface of the moon is nothing short of a masterpiece and it has a lot of twists and turns that lead to one of the greatest achievements of human history.

But it has led to many people thinking that we never landed on the moon. There is much evidence that suggests we were told the biggest lie of the 20th century.
