Microsoft is a corporation with its headquarters in Redmond, USA and ranks as the second most valuable brand worth at $69.3 billion. It supports all the inventions of the manufacturers, goods that are licensed and are related to computing. Microsoft was started by bill gates and his friend Paul Allen and its current CEO is Satya Nadella. Some other top brand competitors are Apple and Samsung but Windows contributes to much of Microsoft’s brand and price.

History of Microsoft Windows

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In 1984Microsoft announced the development of Windows, a graphical user interface (GUI) for its own operating system (MS-DOS). The product line has changed from a GUI product to a modern operating system over two families of design, each with its own codebase and default file system.

It started in 1975 as the producer of the programming languages. This was for MIPS Altair 7500. The Microsoft bought the operating system in 1981. This was from Seattle computer products for the intel chip based 8086. The product was redesigned and licensed to IBM for the new personal computer. It was released as MS-DOS 1.0 IBM.

The name Microsoft was registered in 1976 November, by the secretary of the state of New Mexico. The company opened an international office in japan, 1977. It was called ASCII Microsoft.

It became Microsoft Inc. by incorporating in the state of Washington. The chairman of the board was Bill Gates and the executive VP was Paul Allen.

The Microsoft products

The operating system MS DOS

This is fundamental software in a computer. It allows the computer to operate effectively. This was publicly released in 1980. It was a version of Unix and was called Xenix. This was later as a basis for the first word processor. They called it a multi-tool word.

MS-DOS was the most successful system. It was written for IBM. This was based on Paterson’s QDOS, 1981. The MS-DOS was licensed to IBM by Bill and the rights to the software were retained.

The Microsoft mouse

This was released in 1983.

Windows

This was an operating system that had a novel graphical user interface. It was introduced in 1983. It also had a multitasking environment for the IBM computers.

The Microsoft office

It was released in 1989. This is a collection of the programs that you can use in the office. They include the word processor, mail program, spreadsheet, business presentation and many others.

The internet explorer browser

This was released in 1995. This included the technologies used for connecting to the internet. It has built-in support which was for dial-up networking and the IP/TCP. It also had the web browser internet explorer 1.0.

The Xbox

This is a first gaming unit that was introduced in 2001.it is the first gaming console on the market. This was discontinued due to the competition from the Sony’s PlayStation. In 2005, they released the Xbox 360 gaming console. This is still available in the market and it is successful.

The following are some of the reasons why Microsoft is popular:

It has an easy user interface. Some simple operations needed commands before the Linux/Unix like fedora, Ubuntu. For example, creating a folder was so complicated. It has been made easier by windows, you only need to click a button.

It is cheap. Not everyone can afford the Mac. The windows computers are very cheap on the IBM devices for most applications as compared to the Mac.

The hardware-software compatibility. Windows can run on any hardware that you install it to. It can also recognize the hardware you plug into. It only needs onetime purchase of the windows installation disk.
