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.

Exactly. Win2000 was okay for desktops as long as you didn't play games or use exotic hardware. When XP came along as a consumer Desktop OS, it was okay for desktops as long as you didn't play games or use exotic hardware. But, manufacturers didn't have a choice with it being the only Windows OS so they made their stuff work with XP.

Its not that XP wasn't great when migrating from win98, but win2000 was also great when migrating from win98.
