History of PowerPoint
The initial release that was known as “Presenter” was designed originally by Macintosh computer and was developed by Dennis Austin as well as Thomas Rudkin of Forethought Inc. The “Presenter” was renamed to “PowerPoint” in 1987 as there were issues with the trademarks. The idea of the name “PowerPoint” came from Robert Gaskins. In the same year, in August, Microsoft bought Forethought for $14 million USD. It went on to become the “Graphics Business Unit” of Microsoft and it continued the process of developing the software even further. PowerPoint’s Microsoft version was launched officially on the same day on which Windows 3.0 was released by Microsoft.
Several new changes were introduced by PowerPoint when the PowerPoint 97 was released. The incorporation of the “Visual Basic for Applications” (VBA) was done in this version which underlined every macro generation of Office 97. Later on PowerPoint 2000 version was launched along with the rest of the suite of Office 2000. In this version, a clipboard was introduced which was capable of holding a number of objects at one time. Also in this version, the “Office Assistant” was made to be less intrusive.
The animation engine was overhauled massively by PowerPoint 2002 version which allowed the users to create animations that were more customized as well as advanced.

This program is being used at a frequency that is estimated to be nearly 350 times in a second by the presenters all over the world.
