About Microsoft

Microsoft was started by childhood friends, Bill Gates, and Paul Allen. They wanted to make a business utilizing their shared skills in computer programing.

Their first company was founded in 1972 and called Traf-O-Data.  Traf-O-Data sold a rudimentary computer to track and analyze automobile traffic data. Microsoft was officially established in 1975 in Albuquerque, NM.  Gates was the CEO.

In 1977, they established their first international office in Japan, and in 1979 they moved their headquarters to Bellevue, WA.

Over the years they added MS-DOS, which solidified their dominance, Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer, MSNBC, Windows XP, Windows Vista, the Xbox, and more.

They moved their headquarters to Redmond, WA in 1986 where they are today. You can find their products almost anywhere.  They have over 100 Microsoft retail stores in 31 US states, Australia, Canada, Puerto Rico, and the United Kingdom.
