Windows 7 Boosts Microsoft Earnings
Now, that's more like it! Last year around this time, we were talking here in RCPU about how Vista had helped tank Microsoft's earnings. You remember Vista, right? Well, Microsoft probably doesn't want you to because Windows 7 is tossing touchdown passes while Vista threw mostly interceptions. (Hey, it's Super Bowl week.)
And the success of the new operating system is showing up in Microsoft's earnings, which look way, way better now than they did last year. The moral of this story? Never, ever count out Microsoft, especially when it comes to something Redmond knows how to do. Reports of Microsoft's demise (and there were plenty of them a year ago) do now look premature indeed.
