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.

The mentality in which you are referring to is not exclusive to Microsoft. It is human nature to "slack off" when one is not under pressure.

Very true for wage slaves (as most employees are). Not true for those who can choose to do what they love and love what they choose. Open source development comes to mind.

Right, because you can earn all kinds of wages coding for free.
