if you are referring to things like MS Word etc then MS stands fro Microsoft

Microsoft never use this abbreviation themselves - it's always Microsoft®

Others sometimes use M$ for obvious reasons.

Many years ago they were called Micro Soft (possibly referring to part of Bill Gates anatomy).

what about MS Dos

True. In the early days Microsoft used the abbreviation MS on some products; MS Basic, MS Dos, and they were the MS in "MSX"

Any recent product is properly known as Microsoft® Office®, Microsoft® Outlook®,Microsoft® Bob®, etc. and shouldn't be abbreviated (although everyone does obviously)

Microsoft Bob a recent product! released with Windows 95 and discontinued before Windows 98.
