SOFTWARE FLOGGER Microsoft is laughing all the way to the bank after announcing its lastest figures.
The outfit saw its profits grow by 35 per cent in the first three months of 2010, which it attributed to its release of the Windows 7 operating system.
The Vole claims Windows 7 is proving to be its best-selling operating system to date, and said that its business customers are "beginning to refresh their desktops" and shift to Windows 7.
The outfit made a net profit of £2.6 billion. It claimed it had also seen "strong growth" from its Bing search engine business and XBox Live.
Sales hit a record $14.5 billion, which was up six per cent over the same period last year.
It looks like technology companies are doing well, overall. Yahoo and Apple both announced record profits and Google also reported strong figures the week before. µ
Oh and it'll also help give aural pleasure
But it might still not be enough to make virtual reality super appealing
And a ridiculous competition
Now you can talk to your silly-looking earbuds too
