Microsoft purchased an existing operating system from another company and modified it. It is known as MS-DOS (Microsoft Disk Operating System) and was released in 1981. After this, their humble business boomed. The majority of computer manufacturers in this era used MS-DOS as their operating system. By the 1990s, they sold more than 100 million copies.
