When Bill Gates got Microsoft into home gaming, he was clear that this wasn’t an end in itself. Now, with the release of more details about the company’s upcoming console, he comes closer to making Windows the hub of our digital lives
Microsoft Corporation is one of the world’s biggest software makers and manufactures and licenses a range of products and services related to computing. Founded in 1975 by Bill Gates and Paul Allen, the company is probably best known for its Windows software, although it has begun an aggressive drive into the mobile sector seeking to make inroads on market share held by Google and Apple. It paid 5.44 billion euros for the handset business of Nokia in September 2013.
