Soft PC sales send Microsoft profit down 29 pct

SEATTLE (AP) - Microsoft Corp. said Thursday its profit in the last quarter plunged 29 percent because of weak computer sales, ending a fiscal year in which the software maker’s revenue fell for the first time since the company went public in 1986.

wrong wrong wrong the profit is down because they do not have windows 7 out and people are not buying computers until it is out. Just like Microsoft blame others when they are the one dragging down computer sales.

I saw on CNN and on google news that the percent was 17% not 29%.

That’s not going to get much better for a few years :wink:
Windows7 will give a short rise, plateau quickly, and they’ll be back in the same position in April next year :wink:
