Back in 1981, Bill Gates and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen pulled of an audacious feat: they licensed MS-DOS to IBM, but in a deal that saw them retain entire control of the software. To mark the occasion, the pair were photographed amid a sea of contemporary computers—and now they've recreated the image.

The picture, taken at Seattle's Living Computer Museum—in fact founded by Allen—shows the pair surrounded by the exact same hardware. Nice to see that Gates still looks a little scruffy after all this time.
