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.

but then again the aeguement of hardware vendors. Linux developers have to put up with a lot of flack simply because hardware vendors refuse to produce drivers of linux or release code for them to be produced by community developers.

In fact, the vendors and integrators aren't always free to release their own specs - if they have deals with other people.

Because not everyone wants to play by the ridiculous rules that FOSS people have created. Just look at how the kernel is regarding a stable driver ABI.
