And the flute. Apparently he sometimes started presentations for investors with a little solo performance.

Tech Trivia Time: Technically, he started his career in tech as an illegal alien, having entered the US on a student visum and staying on after it expired. He had a good job lined up at HP - which he couldn't take because he failed to get a Green Card. So he founded Borland.
