Microsoft profit beats on strong Windows 7 sales

After a small amount of gap for Microsoft fans as they finally introduces successor of Windows Vista is now well known and  much popularly known as Windows 7. After a flop show from Vista which made  seven to launch last year rather than starting a new year by new OS. Starting up the New Year with high sales and profit will definitely raise Microsoft’s expectations for their upcoming products.

After the launch of Windows 7 Microsoft Corp posted a bigger-than-expected 60 percent jump in quarterly profit, helped by strong sales of Windows 7, and said it expected business technology spending to recover this year. The world’s biggest software maker said on Thursday that net profit came to $6.7 billion. Their expectations were 59 % per share and fulfilling their expectations it raises 60% per share after the launch of Windows 7 in October last year. Microsoft included the effects of deferred revenue from pre-sales of Windows 7 to PC makers and retailers, and its free upgrade program. Excluding that revenue, profit was 60 cents per share. Windows 7 has proved to be Microsoft’s strongest-selling operating system to date after the disappointing Vista. PC sales grew 15.2 percent last quarter.

Last year stock being outperformer , this year can make their stock to go high after seven there is also new office (Microsoft Office 2010) Coming  in June this year. According to me even office will be a huge hit. So let’s wait and watch what does Office brings this year.
