Microsoft Corp.

1 Conversation

The Microsoft Corporation, based in Redmond, Washington, USA, on planet Earth was renowned during its brief existence for being able to create anything out of nothing, innovation out of ancient technology, and obedience out of the most rebellious contract partner.

Was brought to trial in the late 20th centrury (Earth date), and nearly destroyed itself through bungled courtroom antics. Was rendered irrelevant shortly afterwards after Internet Time started moving too quickly for it to adapt.
