Has Microsoft ever invented anything, other than the talking paperclip?

To be fair almost everything has been done before, and innovation isn`t what makes a company big, good marketing and business does (and by good I mean being ruthless). There are plenty of reasons why Microsoft is bad but it seems like people are starting to stretch for reasons. It`s not like we can do much about it anyways, were dependent on them, at least gamers are...

It`s amazing how many things they were really late on, like Windows-based operating system, word processor, email client, web client, streaming audio/video, that they are now market leaders at. They are excellent at capitalizing on other peoples` ideas.
