This is the PowerPoint history.
Bob Gaskins, a former Berkeley Ph.D. student, conceived PowerPoint

originally as an easy-to-use presentation program. He hired a software

developer, Dennis Austin, in 1984 to build a prototype program, called

"Presenter," later changing the name to PowerPoint for trademark reasons.

PowerPoint 1.0 was released in 1987 for the Apple Macintosh platform; later

that year Gaskins's company Forethought and the program were purchased

by Microsoft for $14 million.

The first Windows and DOS versions of PowerPoint followed in 1988.

PowerPoint became a standard part of the Microsoft Office suite in 1990.

According to Microsoft, more than 30 million presentations are made around

the world with PowerPoint every day.
