Windows Sales Fall
« on: 23 July 2011, 00:48 »

Microsoft's Business Division revenue grew seven percent in the quarter and 16 percent for the full year. Office 2010 -- the most successful version of the productivity suite, with more than 100 million licenses sold -- helped the Redmond, Wash.-based software giant finish the fiscal year with record revenue of $69.94 billion, a 12 percent increase from the prior year.

But the Windows Relevant Products/Services and Windows Live division couldn't keep up with that growth: Revenue there declined in the quarter, and revenue for the full year fell two percent. It's the third straight quarter of decline for Windows as tablet Relevant Products/Services computers, powered by mobile Relevant Products/Services operating systems like Google's Android and Apple's iOS, take an increasing bite out of the PC Relevant Products/Services market.

Fuck tablet fads.
