  • About Microsoft

    Microsoft has had an impact on, and indeed defined the computing world like no other company. The development tools, operating systems and applications produced by Microsoft have achieved near-ubiquity in the desktop computer market. The original mission set by Microsoft's founder was to have "a computer on every desk and in every home, running Microsoft software". About 90% of computer users worldwide run Microsoft products, hence this objective has largely been met. For operating systems, Web client statistics suggest that Microsoft Windows has about a 92% share, Apple Mac OS 6% and Linux, 1%.
