Microsoft is not only a technology giant but also among the most valued companies in the world. In today’s competitive air, even a giant like Microsoft doesn’t have a chance to can a few winks. No doubt, that Microsoft has always been questioned over its failures, but if it wasn’t for Microsoft, the convenience of modern computer technology that we take for granted today, wouldn’t have reached us this way. Despite of few misses, some of the latest and greatest hits of Microsoft are listed below:
Atop the list of greatest hits of Microsoft is its Windows 7 operating system. After the “not so successful” launch of Microsoft Vista, Microsoft needed a product that could again give it the appreciation it deserves and Windows 7 turned out exactly as it should have. The operating system completely changed the look of “the kind of similar looking” Windows operating systems. Starting from the startup tone and Windows symbol to the pace of performance and in-built apps, all the “new” were for good, and people appreciated and accepted it with open arms.
Microsoft Office is and has always been among the most powerful Microsoft’s inventions. Microsoft Office is undoubtedly the most used software applications by both technical as well as non-technical users. Microsoft Office 2010 is the most rapidly selling version of Office suite in the history of Microsoft and Microsoft reaches cloud with Office 365.
Internet Explorer 9
Internet Explorer was kicked out of the race for a long time and other browsers were on a role. Internet Explorer languished over years but the comeback began with IE7. The latest version 9 has turned out to be a true competition for Chrome, Firefox and Opera. The browser is fast, stable and highly enjoyable to use. For a die-hard fan of browsers like Opera, Chrome and Firefox, it might not be easy to switch over but IE9 has turned out to a respectable choice.
Kinect for Xbox 360
Kinect for Xbox 360 has completely changed the way you play games, listen to music, and watch TV and movies. With Kinect, there are no remote or controllers but you. Within the first 25 days of its launch, the sale was limited to 100,000 units per day, which quickly exceeded to the mark of 2.5 million. Along with its commercial success, Kinect puts a step in the direction of evolving NUI (Natural User Interface) where human and computer has a direct interaction.
Microsoft Security Essentials
Last but certainly not the least in the list is Microsoft Security Essentials, which is a free security solution for all genuine Windows (Windows 7, XP and Vista) users. Microsoft Security Essentials does not claim to be the best antivirus solution out there but certainly is an effective one. It is non-intrusive, light, swift, and offers a performance, which is competence to commercial antiviruses.
