Microsoft notches record profits, thanks Vista

Darren Murph

Don't act surprised: record profits are the expected benefits of selling 20 million copies of a much-delayed operating system, but we must say that increasing one's net income 65-percent year-over-year to a staggering $4.93 billion is worth congratulating. Sure, the newfangled system has suffered (and still is) its share of troubles in the early goings, but with those kind of profits coming in, we're sure all of Redmond will be treated to a 12-pack of their favorite soft drink in celebration. Looking forward, Microsoft also noted that next quarter's performance should be just as impressive, and since it's pulling in all this dough of late, why not extend that $3 software bundle to us low-on-cash Americans, alright?
