Name:Course:Professor:Date:IntroductionMicrosoft Company was founded in the year 1975 by Bill gates and Paul Allen, when they entered into a joint venture. The company started by creation of many prototypes, which enabled it to simulate its systems quickly. Bavasso (38) asserts that Microsoft Company has advanced in the supplying and development of many types of software. It was investigated for antitrust behavior because of its tendency to abuse its market leadership in the software industry. In fact, the legal system investigated it with the major goal being to establish with solid evidence whether the Microsoft company had developed the monopolistic framework in its operations. This was aimed at protecting the other software companies like Apple from extinction. The monopolistic effect usually culminates in unfair competition and subsequent destabilizing of the market whereby the monopoly leads in supply and decision making in a particular market niche. The company managed to develop sophisticated computer systems, which suited the professionals of all categories and careers. Furthermore, these tailored products could only be compatible with the windows operating system.
