Microsoft hardware has been developed since 1982, when the Microsoft Hardware division was formed[1] to design a computer mouse for use with Microsoft Word for DOS. Since then, Microsoft has developed computer hardware, gaming hardware[2] and mobile hardware. It also produced drivers and other software for integrating the hardware with Microsoft Windows.
