An operating system is a program which allows computers to communicate with other electronic devices, such as hard drives, expansion boards, graphic cards, ports, etc.  Bill Gates got into the market when IBM PC's were gasping for a sensible operating system and which Bill in his genius, offered manufacturers for almost nothing.  

 

 

 

Bill Gates - Chairman Microsoft

 

 

Next came the Windows idea.  Not particularly original, as per Mackintosh, but certainly a good idea for PCs.  Mr Gates then included an office suite and other programs, such that most users did not have to look elsewhere to produce excellent results from their home or office.  

 

To cap it all, Microsoft then gave away their Explorer and Outlook Express internet software, leaving their competitors struggling to maintain their market position, let alone compete for new business.

 

Microsoft chairman, Bill Gates, says: "we are entering the PC plus era."  "This will be a time when we see an amazing proliferation of small, connected devices that will commonly be used at home and at work." Hence the introduction of the Windows CE3.0 real time operating system.  These days we all need a computer to survive.  Our thanks go out to all those programmers all over the world, who've made the electronic revolution possible.
