Microsoft It turns out that a lot of people haven't been paying attention. Over the weekend, a story about how Microsoft is earning more from HTC's Android devices than from its own Windows Phone 7 sales spread all across the web, with surprised reactions everywhere. Anyone who has been paying attention to Microsoft's recent patent trolling regarding Android could've seen this coming.

Microsoft's Linux Revenue

I don't know how true it is, but I used to have a friend who work for a major Linux vendor, and he said Microsoft is also a huge seller of Linux.

Typically they'd go into an environment. Sell the MS products (exchange...) Then *help* with the linux areas by selling support and certifications for the Linux systems.
