I want to thank everyone for their support of The History of Microsoft series here on Channel 9. I had a great time creating it and I hope you enjoyed watching it. 1999 is
the Series finale because we may try and do something a bit different for the last decade which would include the years 2000 to 2009. Maybe go a bit more indepth. We haven't decided and they have not been shot yet. Thanks again for the support and enjoy
The History of Microsoft 1999. For Microsoft, 1999 is the end of the decade but just the beginning of more growth. Microsoft is one of the first software companies to create its own computer science research organization,
called MSR. Internet Explorer 5.0 is introduced by Bill Gates at a launch event on the Microsoft campus in Redmond and MSN Mobile the newest addition to the MSN(TM) network of Internet services is available.
