Microsoft "Microsoft told Wall St it's reconciled to the fact the seven-year-old Windows XP will occupy more of the client revenue mix than Microsoft would have preferred, while revenue for the full year will grow less than the year just closed. With the 'wow' clearly failing to materialize in fiscal 2007, Microsoft was left to pronounce itself 'broadly happy' - not blown away - with Windows Vista sales."

How?

How is that whenever there are some good news about Microsoft OSNews editors link to an article that try to discredit those news?

Why not starting the thread as follows:

"Microsoft Posts $50 Billion in Annual Revenue"

Of course not, those are good news about MS and we need a *big*big* flamewar to keep the site running, right?

I've been an OSNews reader for the past 4 years and I know this is a pro-Mac pro-Linux site but enought is enought.

Sure, because OSNews never links to articles that are critical of Linux, right?

Look, MS is the dominant software company, and it often uses its market dominance to try and crush the competition. It's only natural that people would often be critical of it. After all, who ever sides with the Empire in Star Wars?

And they should be critical. I just wish some of criticism was more constructive, instead of some of the foaming-at-the-mouth stuff you might see here sometimes. Oh well, you take the good with the bad.

Based on my past experience in playing Star Wars: Galaxies (mmorpg in case anyone didn't know) quite a lot of people actually.

I don't agree that OSNews is a "pro-Mac pro-Linux site", but I was indeed wondering why, out of all of the articles regarding Microsoft's record earnings, OSNews went with theregister. ;) :p
