Comparing Microsoft to Enron? Nice try, troll.

Last year MS released form 8-K the "Current Report" on July 22. The audited Annual Report, form 10-K, was released on July 30. The earnings and profit numbers are identical between the two reports.

If they do the same this year, it's only one week until the audited report is available. You really think Microsoft will alter their earnings significantly between now and the end of the month? When have they previously done so?

And how is this year's form 8-K Current Report not up to the "normal standards" of previous years'?
