PowerPoint at 30

22 Aug

Microsoft’s PowerPoint is still the industry leader in presentation software after three decades. [Did you know that, in the 1980s, Apple actually invested in and helped to develop the software?]

Microsoft acquired PowerPoint in 1987 and has steadily improved the product. Here is a time-line infographic from Glisser (an events management firm):

“To celebrate PowerPoint turning 30 years old in 2017, we’ve pulled together some of the twists and turns of its life so far. Through its sheer versatility it’s amongst the longest-serving software applications on the market. With additions like our audience participation extension, it’s ready for the next 30 years in the hands of the social media generation.”
