ABOUT THIS COMPANY:Colossus of the computer world
Microsoft has long held its rank as the world’s largest software company and an undeniable giant in the computing industry. Its products are seemingly more ubiquitous than oxygen, and a way of life for personal and business computing the world over. Primarily known for its market-dominating Windows operating system, MS also produces the popular Explorer browser, the Office suite of programs (including Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint and Access), the Xbox game system and the Zune music player.
