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.

It really is a great release by MS and I have to say, well done Redmond. I'm still waiting for my brother in-law to send me a cheap copy as he works for MS and I'm still running the release candidate ;-).

Frankly, MS has a hard battle ahead in trying to get businesses to migrate. Remember, it's not solely for the revenue, although that's obviously a big part, but also to finally get people to migrate away from IE6 only apps. The only worry I have is that with the free XP virtualized environment, companies will continue to drag their feet.

I guess only time will tell.
