Microsoft

Microsoft is the world's leading producer of computer software. Microsoft was incorporated in 1981, but the company's roots go back at least as far as 1975, when the first commercially available personal computer appeared on the cover of Popular Electronics. The Altair 8800, as it was called, was a rudimentary system, but it found a market for home-based computers that in turn created a new demand: software to use with them. Bill Gates and his friend Paul Allen immediately saw the potential. Gates contacted the company that made the Altair, MITS (Micro Instrumentation and Telemetry Systems), and offered to write a program for the new computer. Gates and Allen created an interpreter for BASIC, then a mainframe programming language, for use with the Altair. MITS hired both Gates and Allen in 1975, but by 1976 they had left to devote more time to their own fledgling company, Microsoft (from microcomputer and software).
