Microsoft is the worldwide leader in software, services and solutions that help people and businesses realize their full potential

Microsoft was founded in 1975 by Bill Gates and Paul Allen, and has become a worldwide leader in corporate and personal computer software, widely recognized for its Windows line of operating systems and Office suite of productivity applications. 

In the past few years, the company has increased its focus on areas outside of desktop software, establishing a greater presence in the online arena with its Bing search service and delving deeper into mobile with Windows Phone. Microsoft is also known for its hardware consumer products, most famously for its Xbox gaming consoles, as well as the more recent Surface line of tablet/laptop hybrid computers.
