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.

Also, I wouldn't call XP a "lackluster release." It had problems, yes, but maintaining 90%+ market share for as long as it did is far from "lackluster," in my opinion.

I don't disagree with your statement but that "90%+" market share is on the desktop only. In the other markets (server, netbook, mobile, embedded) the penetration is not nearly as much. It is worth qualifying your statements to make them more accurate - otherwise you look like a fanboi that thinks all of computing is the desktop only.
