It's hard to believe that Microsoft is already 28 years old. The company that made Redmond, Washington a household name was actually founded in another city, in 1975, by two young men from Seattle, one of whom was a college dropout. From this inauspicious beginning came an equally improbable vision: A personal computer on every desk and in every home. Twenty-eight years later, it seems so obvious. But at the time, when only a handful of people knew what a personal computer was, it was a great leap of faith and daring. This revolutionary idea not only made technology a powerful tool for all of us, it also created a new industry that changed our world. Today, we continue to expand the possibilities of personal computing by developing new ways to empower our customers anytime, anywhere, and on any device. The Microsoft Museum timeline documents some of the most critical turning points along our 28-year journey.
