A company that produces the Operating System Windows. Windows was the first commercially available GUI style OS for the mass consumer market. However, due to the fact that ALL Brand New Non-Mac PC's come with Windows pre-installed now, most consumers miss the fact that there are other OS out there. Sirius Linux etc.
Microsoft has done a lot of good for the hacking community. Their system is easy to modify, and Internet Explorer is the best browser for sending viruses, trojans, and tracking cookies. You can easily destroy another person's computer if they are running Windows just by creating dinky code in less than a minute.
Microsoft also attempts to dominate other markets as well, such as Xbox for video games and Zune for MP3 players. Those are just more easily hacked items that fail at the larger community, but attract a strong cult following.
At least Microsoft gave mass consumers and newbies a simple, user-friendly operating system. But in the year 2006, more people are technical and know how to install another system.
