Update: Microsoft revenue boosted by Windows 7

IDG News Service - Thanks largely to the Windows 7 launch, Microsoft on Thursday reported a strong increase in net income and revenue for its second quarter of fiscal 2010.

The company rang up $6.66 billion in net income, an increase of 60% from the same period a year earlier. Revenue totalled $19.02 billion for the quarter ending Dec. 31, a 14% increase from the prior year.

Part of the boost came from deferred revenue earned earlier this year, from pre-sales of Windows 7 to PC makers and retailers. This revenue amounted to $1.71 billion.

Even without the deferred revenue, the results were in line with analyst expectations, with second-quarter revenue totaling $17.31 billion, and earnings of 60 cents per share. In a poll of analysts, Thomson Reuters showed an expected revenue of $17.9 billion and earnings per share of 59 cents.

Should we be concerned that it was $6.66 billion?

I can't discuss i here but I know where a good deal of that could best be used at this time! Being that 7 is actually a success story you can sure that will be a profit maker for sure even with the lower retail tags for the different editions! But that was businesses count on to start with... namely "profits"!

I watch much, much, much smaller retail chains file bankruptcy and have close out clearance sales while 7 has been a large boost for MS there! Don't forget to add in Server 2008 entering the picture for the corporate side as well as the MS office products to add in on top of things.

One item the article doesn't mention is the large ad campaign being seen for 7 when comparing that to the little seen with the previous versions overall. And one other item to add to the list is netbooks coming into the picture as well as new laptops and desktops with 7 on them too.
