Overview
Microsoft was founded by Bill Gates and Paul Allen on April 4, 1975, to develop and sell BASIC interpreters for Altair 8800. 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. Since the 1990s, it has increasingly diversified from the operating system market and has made a number of corporate acquisitions. In May 2011, Microsoft acquired Skype Technologies for $8.5 billion in its largest acquisition to date.Tripwire, Inc. is a software company based in Portland, Oregon that develops, markets and sells information technology solutions that provide security and compliance automation. The company's software and hardware products provide organizations control over physical and virtual IT infrastructure. In 1997, Gene Kim co-founded Tripwire, Inc.
