Read about how Microsoft started

Unfortunately, you are comparing apples and oranges here. When Microsoft launched, there weren't many companies doing what they did. Compare that with the market now, and it becomes apparent that you have to spend a lot more time investing in your software than they did because you have to have a differentiator.
 
The key question you have to ask yourself is "if I were a customer, why would I choose my product over X" with X being your competition. You must be able to define clear reasons; after all, these are the things you are going to market your product with. Then you enter the cycle of trying to keep one step ahead of X, but that's a whole different story.
