The company's online efforts included the MSN network of Internet products and services and alliances with companies involved with broadband access and various forms of digital interactivity.

During fiscal 2002, Microsoft had four defined major business segments: Desktop and Enterprise Software and Services; Consumer Software, Services, and Devices and Consumer Commerce Investments.

A significant portion of Microsoft's focus in the early 2000s was on the .NET architecture.

Using common industry standards based on XML1, a universal language for describing and exchanging data, .NET's goal was to enable seamless sharing of information across many platforms and programming languages, and over the Internet.

Microsoft had also embarked on a long-term initiative called Trustworthy Computing, which aimed at providing an enhanced level of security, privacy, reliability, and business integrity to computer systems.
