Jeff Bezos's Amazon is known to all technology enthusiasts. By the way, it can be said that it is known to anyone who might want to buy anything online. On the other hand, this assumption applies equally to Bill Gates' Microsoft.
As is well known, the latter, in turn, is the one that has developed over the years the various operating systems that most of the world's population uses on their PCs, Windows.

However, the one that was once the most valuable company in the world – and yesterday ranked third in this table – became fourth on February 15, 2018. In fact, Jeff Bezos has more than reason to cheer because Amazingly, Amazon has reached the podium.
Bill Gates's Microsoft will have to work to get to Jeff Bezos's Amazon spot
While behind Apple and Google, which are worth about $ 849 and $ 744 billion, respectively, Amazon is now worth more than Bill Gates' Microsoft – led today by Satya Nadella.
Thus, the 72% growth in a single year – a factor that allowed Jeff Bezos to become the richest man in the world, surpassing Gates – was now responsible for taking over a place that Microsoft had occupied for some time.
Amazon's growth has been so great that, on the one hand, it won't be hard to expect that it will eventually reach Google's parent company Alphabet. Consequently, it will not be difficult for Jeff Bezos to see his 23-year-old company become the most valuable of them all.
However, growth rates are not as linear as this, and it is likely to slow down sooner or later. We'll see what actually happens.
