That's not true. Commodore (well, actually MOS Technology, before CBM bought them) released the KIM-1 in 1976. The Apple I was also released in 1976. Microsoft was founded in April 1975, with Altair BASIC being their flagship product at the time.

Commodore's 8-bit BASICs were always Microsoft's 6502 BASIC, which was originally written in 1976. Their 8080 BASIC (first appearing on the Altair), being the product that gave Microsoft their start, was written in 1975. The PET and Apple II both came out in 1977, both using Microsoft BASIC.
