Atari Microsoft BASIC is a programming language created in 1981. The Atari Microsoft BASIC and Atari Microsoft BASIC II variants of the BASIC programming language were ROM cartridge or floppy disk packaged versions of the Microsoft BASIC dialect ported to the Atari 8-bit machines.

They outsourced to another company, Shepardson Microsystems Inc. Read more on Wikipedia...
