Microsoft has become one of the largest and well known companies on the planet, but how did they start, what's their story and just how big are they today? In this video we'll take a look. #Microsoft #History #Size Garry Kildall story: https://youtu.be/sDIK-C6dGks Correction, it was a mistake to refer to the PDP-8 and those other computers in the 1960s as "microcomputers", these were mini-computers. Microcomputers were only possible after Intel's introduction of the CPU in 1973. Sorry about that.

Correction at 11:34, Microsoft no longer owns Nokia. That was a mistake, sorry about that.
George Slavchev (7 hours ago)
They never did own Nokia. They owned Microsoft Mobile which had a licence to sell Nokia-branded phones for a limited time.
Miika Hämäläinen (16 days ago)
+Prakhar Chawla Nokia id actually not owned by HMD Global, but had been granted by Nokia to use their name on their phones. Nokia is still a big company manufacturing the telephone base stations.

I wasn't a big fan of Bill Gates back then, but as he got older and became a philanthropist he turned a new leaf.

*Microsoft is huge.* Their best move was to accept the Open Source idea. The converted to the device + software as a service or subscription. Selling expensive software on CDs is a bit harder today. Software as a service or subscription is a lot more simple, when all the upgrades happen on the server, and the use has no need to do anything for the upgrade or security. Let's hope Microsoft will respect and honor their commitment to the Open Source model and competing projects. Android apps would make Microsoft even better, if they had some innovation in that.

14:12, you red it correctly but on the screen there is written: "The quick brown fox jumped (not "jumps" - as it should be)..." making the sentence without "s". Nevertheless thank you for the great video, giving a thumb up! :-)

The real problem of Microsoft was Ballmer, the additude of Ballmer with his outdated 80's "competition cannot kill us, we are the best" mindset and still treat consumers of there products as guinea pigs (which was possible in the early days). He don't want to accept others can do it better, instead of corporate he starts to fight the competition. Microsoft still try to recover from this bully effect however I believe it is a little too late and copying Apple's and Google ideas is not a solution. They will survive for a long time because of money and some 'reputation' and connections but they are loosing market share (on major divisions) because others did it better with better products. Nadella does a good job however cannot fix all of the damage because it is too late, people don't want adopt, it is another time. Google ruin their software business model at consumer level, free software and pay with something else. Because of the internet, sharing software and solutions, getting better and better. Open software is booming, it will effect Apple at the long run too. Open software become mature like all other things in life, solved problems, complicated things results in 'simple' things, serves humans, world getting smarter. We have learned from the past that big companies can even disappear like snow on a sunny morning. One mistake is just a matter of time.

How can you review the history of Microsoft and not mention Steve Ballmer even once. I think this is your worst work so far.
Dispie Dark (24 days ago)
I think losing Gates is the worse thing that happened to Mircosoft. Window 10 is not popular, you get forced into it with harassment pop ups, when your using new hardware with windows 7 even do it works better under windows 7. Windows 10 is still one of the most buggy and user unfriendly OS i ever worked with, updates have never been so dangerous. I have been doing tech support for it for 25 years now, i would say windows 10 is just as bad as windows Millennium or Vista. Edge i seriously doubt there gone pass chrome, bing is the worse search engine, and there a lot of other issues with edge. Companies going over to windows 10 are also forced to upgrade to a new office version older versions don't work well. And if you have scrips in your office, well you have to start over because your old ones don't work in new office. So a upgrade to windows 10 mostly also involves a upgrade to office+scrips and other software as well. This leads to having to do large investments into update or new software. There not making friends with this lack of support for older software. As for hardware its almost apple, outdated hardware in new devices and overpriced or just not good enough compared to others on the market. With google new game platform and linux coming closer to be a gaming OS, i think the future of mircosoft has never looked as bad as it does today on the software side of things.

Right now the current valuation of Microsoft is *$904,860,000,000.00* at the moment. Microsoft is currently the world's largest company by market cap. Amazon, Google and Apple are also in the running as well for world's largest companies by market cap.
