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.

Oh, what a racket the OS business turned out to be...

Has been glaringly obvious that both Microsoft and Apple have been hampering OS progress by lock-in or by forcing developers to adapt.

I'm not really impressed with Win7. The Aero style is severly lacking in both subtle aesthetics and tactile refinement. A decade has passed and Windows still feels like parking a rhinoceros. Unfortunately, Microsoft is in the business of selling mediocrity.
