Everyone is keenly aware of the more than $300 billion dollar company that is Microsoft (MSFT). From the classic Windows and Office products to the latest Xbox and Skype, the business doesn’t exactly need an introduction. In fact, it’s quite likely that you are using or near a Microsoft product now; we used a couple just to get this article to you.
So instead of providing a generic opening, we thought it might be interesting to highlight the company with some numbers. There are 1.3 billion people that use Windows everyday and one in seven of the world’s population use Office. Skype represents one-third of the worldwide phone traffic and Outlook has 400 million users. Internet Explorer’s usage share is over 56%.
In other words, large is a bit of an understatement.
