Microsoft has reported its Q4 results and the revenues have surpassed market estimates. With yearly revenue tally moving to $69,94 billion, Microsoft has reported an increase of 12% from last year’s revenues. Net income was at $23.15 billion while earnings per share for the year were at $2.69.
Microsoft has also announced couple of major milestones that they have achieved in the recent past.
1. Microsoft has sold more than 400 Million copies of Windows 7 operating system by now. They already announced sometime back that Windows 7 had been selling at an exorbitant pace of over 7 copies per second but with latest milestone of 400 million sales of Windows 7, it does appear that there’s no dampening of sales of Windows 7 operating system.
Another interesting fact is that Windows 7 is now installed on 30% of all PCs worldwide. This throws a lot of weight behind the adoption of Windows 7 by users who had been using Windows XP for ages.
2. Second big milestone hit by Microsoft is that Office 2010 has been sold to over 100 million users worldwide. This one is more crucial as Office 2010 is barely an year old office application suite and hence, Microsoft would definitely want to make Office 2010 even more successful in the years to come.
The major push in sales success of Office 2010 is certainly due to strategy of packaging pre-installed version of Office Starter 2010 with new PC and laptop sales.
