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.

Hmmm I would have agreed in 2002 but now that Apple has 12% share in the US I'd call it a duopoly. It's still an open market, IBM could spend a billion and clone OS X but like other tech giants they don't care about the desktop.


That would be inaccurate. IBM care plenty about the desktop, but management there don't understand it at all, especially when there isn't any IBM hardware involved.

What exactly is inaccurate? I pointed out what they *could* do, not what they are likely to do.

Yes I know that IBM is managed by pussyfoot bean counters. That's part of the problem.
