At Windows Central, we pride ourselves on not only our knowledge of Windows and its associated ecosystem but also the ins and outs of Microsoft’s history. Therefore, we like to keep track of notable dates in the company’s storied past.
This week contains among these dates. To be clear, Microsoft was founded by Bill Gates and Paul Allen just over six years before that, on April 4, 1975.
In other words, by the summer of 1981, Microsoft had reached a stage in its growth where its founders and other decision-makers decided it was time to find all official in the state of Washington, where it was headquartered in the city of Redmond. (Another tidbit of nerd knowledge: Microsoft was first incorporated in the state of Washington on June 25, 1981, but it reincorporated in Delaware on September 19, 1986, and then reincorporated again in the state of Washington on November 1, 1993.)
June 25 was a significant day in Microsoft’s history and an early stepping stone toward its evolution to the technology giant it is today.
