Believe or not Windows 7 is here to stay. With Microsoft fumbling the ball with Vista, they recovered big time in the fourth quarter with Windows 7. However, this was the plan all along. Microsoft thought if it would release Vista, (knowing it wasn’t quite ready) they would get great feedback and would help their next OS release. Well, the plan came back 7 fold! Microsoft reported its best quarter yet, with a net revenue of $19 Billion. This is 14% higher than last year. Now everybody is anticipating for the Windows Mobile 7 release, lets hope it is as successful as Windows 7.
