Our project was on the early History of Microsoft and how it Bill Gates and Paul Allen turned it into the corporate giant it is today. We chronicled the early years of Bill Gates life from his humble beginnings to his time at Harvard. We then talked about Microsoft's early accomplishments as relates to MITS and the Altair 8800. From there we discussed Microsoft's relationship with IBM and how it led to a fallout between the computing rivals. Finally we told of how Microsoft Windows propelled Microsoft to the forefront of computing as well as bring it legal troubles.
