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.

The OEM excuse doesn't hold when Windows 7 had more marketshare than Linux before it was released to retail.

Linux has no problems with OEMs when it comes to the server. You've been able to build Dell and HP servers for years.

The real problem with Linux on the desktop is that it is unappealing to ISVs and IHVs. Too many cooks in the kitchen.
