Microsoft looks back on busy 2012 in new video

Microsoft’s ambitious 2012 is coming to a close, and the company can’t help but be a little nostalgic.

The company today posted a video summing up the year in Microsoft releases, news and events into 12 key milestones. Check it out:

If you don’t like videos for some reason, this page has a convenient slideshow of the events.

Of course, there are the obvious hits with the Surface tablet and the Windows 8 launch, but it’s nice to see Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 being pinnacle achievements over the course of the last year.

But more importantly, the company rightly boasts about its giving campaigns. Its Youth Spark program intends to help 300 million youth with employment opportunities over the next three years.

The company also put out a list of top searches on Bing. Some of the top news stories: iPhone 5 and Kindle Fire. Absent from the list: the Surface (ouch).

Does any particular milestone stand out to you? What are you looking forward to in the year ahead? Let us know in the comments or send us a tweet @SearchWinServ.
