may 17, 1975 - Microsoft's first product

Description:

Microsoft's first product ever was a version of the programming language BASIC for the Altair 8800 "microcomputer," released in 1975 — one of the earliest versions of what we now know as the personal computer, or the PC. Allen and Gates got the idea after reading about the machine in Popular Mechanics magazine.
