Writing your way to the top
The Easy Learning Way
Microsoft Word is a word processor developed by, obviously, Microsoft.
In 1981, Microsoft hired Charles Simonyi, the primary developer of Bravo, the first GUI word processor, which was developed at Xerox PARC.
Simonyi started work on a word processor called Multi-Tool Word with Richard Brodie, a former Xerox intern, who became the primary software engineer. Its name was soon simplified to Microsoft Word.
