Microsoft is a liberal[1][2] American corporation founded by Bill Gates and Paul Allen in 1975 and headquartered in Redmond, Washington, USA. Its current CEO is Steve Ballmer. Microsoft focuses on developing and manufacturing software, hardware and other technology oriented products and services.

Microsoft was investigated for antitrust violations by the Department of Justice, and in 2001 the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit affirmed the finding of the trial court that monopolization by Microsoft had violated the Sherman Act.[3] The appellate court, however, overturned the lower court ruling to break Microsoft up and instead remanded the case to a new trial judge with instructions suggesting a less drastic remedy. By then, President George W. Bush had replaced Bill Clinton and the Bush Administration dropped the demand of the Clinton Administration for a break-up of Microsoft.
