Did You Know?
Microsoft PowerPoint (or simply Power Point) is a presentation program created by Robert Gaskins and Dennis Austin at a software company named Forethought Inc. It was released on April 20, 1987, initially for Macintosh computers only.
Microsoft acquired PowerPoint for $14 million three months after it appeared. This was Microsoft’s first significant acquisition and Microsoft set up a new business unit for PowerPoint in Silicon Valley where Forethought had been located.
