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.

Captain Obvious is working in the Microsoft Marketing department with this release.

Upgrading a virtual monopoly provides huge results. That's not exactly a surprise.


Hmmm I would have agreed in 2002 but now that Apple has 12% share in the US I'd call it a duopoly. It's still an open market, IBM could spend a billion and clone OSX but like other tech giants they don't care about the desktop.
