It rose to dominate the personal computer operating system market with MS-DOS in the mid-1980s, followed by Microsoft Windows. The company's 1986 initial public offering, and subsequent rise in its share price, created three billionaires and an estimated 12,000 millionaires from Microsoft employees.

In May 2011, Microsoft acquired Skype Technologies for $8.5 billion in its largest acquisition to date.
