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

geek_shall, Mar 19, 6:41 pm

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)
