Microsoft Sometimes, the sheer size of a company like Microsoft can make it quite hard to see and realise just how large and profitable such a company can really be. In these kinds of situations, there's nothing like a clear graph to make all those pretty numbers tangible. Up to a point.

That would obviously be false.

Here are real quarterly revenue and profit numbers for the WHOLE company:
2/05 10.818 Mio. 3.463 Mio.
3/05 9.620 Mio. 2.563 Mio.
4/05 10.161 Mio. 3.700 Mio.
1/06 9.741 Mio. 3.141 Mio.
2/06 11.837 Mio. 3.653 Mio.
3/06 10.900 Mio. 2.977 Mio.
4/06 11.804 Mio. 2.828 Mio.
1/07 10.811 Mio. 3.478 Mio.
2/07 12.542 Mio. 2.626 Mio.
3/07 14.398 Mio. 4.926 Mio.
4/07 13.371 Mio. 3.035 Mio.
1/08 13.762 Mio. 4.289 Mio.
2/08 16.367 Mio. 4.707 Mio.
3/08 14.454 Mio. 4.388 Mio.
4/08 15.837 Mio. 4.297 Mio.
1/09 15.961 Mio. 4.373 Mio.
2/09 16.629 Mio. 4.174 Mio.
3/09 13.648 Mio. 2.977 Mio.
4/09 13.099 Mio. 3.045 Mio.
1/10 12.920 Mio. 3.574 Mio.
2/10 19.022 Mio. 6.662 Mio.

Mio = Million
. = ,

And they really made 6.66 billion, that is proof that MS is evil!
(and I disagree that all companies are not likeable .. some companies have a really good ethics and products based on strong principles and then I find myself liking those companies)
