Microsoft Corp. announced that it has "filed a Form 8-K furnishing
financial information from its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended
September 30, 2007, in interactive data format. With this filing,
Microsoft was the first company to provide financial information
using newly issued sets of interactive data tags ("taxonomies") that
use Extensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) technology.
Microsoft furnished a full set of financial information including
its financial statements, footnotes, and Management's Discussion
and Analysis using the latest U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting
Principles taxonomy released by XBRL US on December 5, 2007. In
providing interactive financial information under the newly released
taxonomies, Microsoft continues its long-standing support of the
Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) vision to offer investors
the power of financial information in XBRL. Microsoft has been a
pilot participant in the SEC's voluntary XBRL filer program since 2005.
