Microsoft "Microsoft today announced quarterly revenue of $18.06 billion for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. Operating income and loss per share for the quarter were $192 million and $0.06 per share. The financial results reflect the previously announced non-cash, non-tax-deductible income statement charge of $6.19 billion for the impairment of goodwill and the deferral of $540 million of revenue related to the Windows Upgrade Offer."

the Microsoft hatred is a disease - Linus Torvalds.

MS largely succeeding in their "a PC in every home" goal, the overall economies of scale that Wintel brought, is largely what gave you this nice, inexpensive, powerful machine that you use, MS OS or not. Other paths weren't nearly so certain to bring this toy of yours so quickly (or even not at all http://www.osnews.com/thread?522221 ). Oh and with internet, IE was at some point a blessing & it won because of being a much better browser.
