I was expecting him to say xp or vista but what he told me took me completely by surprise and really made me laugh to myself..... can you guess what they were using??.......all of their computers were macs!! and then he told me that Microsoft creates a lot of software for MacIntosh. I was totally blown away by this it might be common knowledge but I sure didn't know it .....I am gonna have so much fun teasing my mac loving friends!!
Microsoft has been writing code for Macintosh since before the first release. Literally. I don't know which parts, but at least some of the original OS was written by Microsoft.
