This is the Microsoft Wiki, a wiki dedicated to the Microsoft Corporation and its products. We cover Microsoft's software, hardware, history, organization, culture and much more. This wiki is free to be edited by anyone, though we encourage you to log in or sign up to experience the full content of this site. Please note that this site is currently undergoing many major changes, including a major mainpage overhaul. Please bear with us, all mainpage features will be online and functional as soon as possible!
Many websites suffer from either poor or over-complex site administration. We hope to avoid either eventuality. Almost all of our rules are common-sense, and for anything more pedantic the administrators will be able to sort out any issuses caused; thus, editors don't need to read the rules. Our rules can be found at Policy. The rules offer a more precise guide to the workings of our wiki, but so longs as you behave nicley then there should be no issue.
Windows 8 is an operating system produced by Microsoft for use on personal computers, including home and business desktops, laptops, tablets, and home theater PCs. It is part of the Windows NT family of operating systems and succeeds Windows 7.
Gboyers is the resident bureaucrat for the Microsoft wiki, and an employee of Microsoft UK. We owe it to him for this site as he is the reason that we are here today. For this, we are proud to have him as March 2015's Featured User.
The Microsoft Wiki was created through the fusion of several smaller wikis who all hoped to document either all of or some aspect of Microsoft. Currently with one active administrators, the wiki allows anyone to edit (although you are encouraged to make an account), and all contributions are in the public domain.
