Founders Bill Gates and Paul Allen started Microsoft when they designed and marketed the BASIC interpreters for use on the Atari 500. It became the operating system of choice for personal computers with MS-DOS during the 1980’s and was then followed by Microsoft Windows. When Microsoft became a publicly traded company in 1986, it created three billionaires and about 12,000 millionaires from among its ranks. In 2018, Microsoft employed 134,944 employees all across the globe, about 300 of which are in South Africa. In its sustained effort to attract more talented employees, the Microsoft Internship Programme is offered to qualified South African graduates on an annual basis.
