It made you realize how far Microsoft and the World Wide Web have changed from their humble and primitive beginning. This screenshot was a star Map of Microsoft website between April 1994 and August 1995.
Mark Ingalls recalls that when he first typed www.microsoft.com into a Web browser to ensure it hadn’t already been claimed, he was surprised to find a site already there. He traced the site to pioneering Microsoft developer J Allard, who had claimed the server name to test out his new TCP/IP networking stack. The first recorded Microsoft Web server was situated at the end of a hallway in one of the older buildings on campus. Allard agreed to pass the server to the product support group, and it was eventually relocated to a lonely corner of the Microsoft corporate data center.
