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.

RE: Excuses, excuses

how many % of installed copies and forced buys of OEM windows 7 is in use?

Oh, I dunno, about... zero percent (with a margin of error of plus or minus zero).

Does any OEM put a gun to your head and force you to buy a computer with Windows? Does Microsoft threaten you if you consider buying a PC without Windows? Is there some law that forbids you to run an OS other than Windows?

What's that you say, the answer to all of those questions is "no"? Then I hate to break to to you, but no one is "forced" to use Windows.

But it's certainly no surprise that Freetards and Mac fanboys would latch onto the "forced to use Windows" excuse. Gotta find some way to rationalize Linux and OS X's utter failure competing against Windows on the desktop.
