To celebrate the last year Microsoft has put together a video to highlight the 12 biggest moments of 2012.

2012 has been a pretty epic year in the UK with the Royal Jubilee, Royal Wedding and people everywhere sharing two weeks of inspiration during the London Olympics.

2012 has been a momentous year at Microsoft, which experienced its biggest launch year in its history. The company introduced the world to Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, announced its family of Surface PCs, showcased a new version of Microsoft Office, and released Halo 4. Ensuring we keep up a steady rhythm of advancements and innovation across our most popular products for individuals and businesses.

So a huge thanks for all the support in 2012.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and look forward to seeing you all in 2013.
