Microsoft "Microsoft profit jumped 51 percent year over year and recorded record quarterly revenue during Q1 of its fiscal year 2011, the company said today, killing Wall Street estimates as skepticism surrounded Microsoft's cash cows. Net income skyrocketed from $3.57 billion in Q1FY10 to $5.41 billion in the quarter ending Sept. 30, launched by strong sales of Windows 7 and Office 2010. The year-ago period, however, was a low point as Microsoft weathered the poor economy. Earnings per share was 62 cents, eclipsing the Wall Street consensus estimate of 55 cents. And while analysts had expected revenue of $15.8 billion, Microsoft reported $16.2 billion - up 25 percent over the year-ago period."

How would I know? They don't publish the cost of the software, so all you can have is a wild guess and the price they accept to refund. I have to take their word for it. It is very highly unlikely that they refund more than the cost they pay. They may be refund what they paid Microsoft, or they may refund less. Basically they do everything behind closed doors and they refund what they want to refund. That is what they call the free market my friend. They are free to tell you what they want to tell you and to pay what they want to pay. You are free to live in the dark age or to buy what they sell at the price they set and go through the trouble they want you to go through if you want them to apply the law.
