GR: "Microsoft is first and foremost a software company. It is responsible for Windows, the most widely used computer operating system. While Windows 8 has proven to be a point of contention among many PC users, no one can deny the Big M's talents when it comes to creating software. Just look at the Xbox 360 dashboard and how much more advanced it is compared to the competition. Even the blade system, which launched back in 2005, still outclasses today's XMB on the PlayStation 3. The same can be said for Microsoft's innovation in the online space. Sony is still playing catchup to what Microsoft introduced to the world of gaming several years ago."
