channel_9If you are interested in the History of Microsoft, Channel 9 has made some awesome episodes that includes some video footages of Microsoft’s past from 1975 to 1999.

Thirty-four years ago, a nineteen year old kid and his twenty-two year old business partner sold their first program to a little computer company in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The program was called BASIC, and it was the start of this company we call Microsoft.

Today, we’re beginning a brand new series called The History of Microsoft. Travel with us back in time as we discover the roots of one of the world’s most important technology companies. Using rare video and photos we bring you the heart of Microsoft’s struggles and successes.  Year by Year. Every Thursday we will air a brand new episode beginning with 1975 where “The History of Microsoft” all began.

Hope you will enjoy and have fun learning the history of Microsoft.

Here is the list of Episodes by year:

1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999

Each video is about 10 minuets in length that summarized the most important events/milestones throughout the history of this company. Some are good, some faces changelings ahead.

We hope you enjoy this historical journey.

Although, Windows 7’s development haven’t started during the time. But many ancestor OS like Windows 98 lead the road to today’s Windows 7.
