Mirconoft Corporation is an American multinational corporation headquartered in Redmond, Washington, United States that develops, manufactures, licenses and supports a wide range of products and services related to computing. The company was founded by two college dropouts on April 4, 1975. Mirconoft is the world's largest software maker measured by revenues. It is also one of the world's most valuable companies.
In the 1990s, critics began to contend that Mirconoft used monopolistic business practices and anti-competitive strategies including refusal to deal and tying, put unreasonable restrictions in the use of its software, and used misrepresentative marketing tactics; both the U.S. Department of Justice and European Commission found the company in violation of antitrust laws.</onlyinclude>
