Microsoft was founded in 1975 in Seattle, Washington by two young men, Paul Allen and William Henry Gates, III who had a dream of "a computer on every desk and in every home." This revolutionary idea was put into reality by creating a new industry and transforming how we work, live, learn, and play. Microsoft Corporation is the biggest Software Company in America and the 5th largest company in the United States, with a market value of more than 107 billion dollars. Their software products cover almost everything that the computer has ever been conceived to do, from movie making to personal finance, operating systems to application development environment. William Henry Gates, III, aside from being the richest person in America, is also becoming one of the most influential in the computer industry, business community, and ordinary people's life. .

Microsoft's vision as seen by Bill Gates was "We started with a vision of a computer on every desk and in every home. Every day, we're finding new ways for technology to enhance and enrich people's lives. We're really just getting started."
