Billg's First Business Card

Billg's First Business Card

December 19, 2006

It was almost exactly thirty years ago, on the 26th of November 1976, that the trade name, Microsoft, was registered with the Office of the Secretary of the State of New Mexico. The spelling of the name was kicked around for almost a year beforehand, varying from "MicroSoft", to "Micro-soft", to "Micro-Soft", until they finally arrived at "Microsoft". And to complete the transaction, we have the first business card used by BillG that included the company name.
