Microsoft Microsoft presented the results for its second quarter of the 2010 fiscal year yesterday, which ended on December 29 2009. As it turns out, thanks to sales of Windows 7, Microsoft experienced a record quarter, which is especially welcome after the previous two lacklustre ones. It sold 60 million Windows 7 licenses during this record quarter.

You talk about Windows as if their are equal competitors in the desktop market on the same footing.

Windows competes against itself, since hardly anyone can get a foot into the desktop market with OEMs. Windows 7 is the first OS since 2001 that Windows users can properly upgrade to. This is good for Windows users, but no doubt people will treat it as, the second coming of Jesus.
