Yeah, whatever... MS will be gone in 12 months... havent you got a different tune?

So anyway... only the business division will do well?

Also, what does Windows 8 have to do with the Business division?

If you are simply going to come into this thread with your usual agenda and baseless propaganda then can I suggest you dont bother.

Tagging. I'm interested in how much R&D costs them, minimal to the large scale but still interesting.

Have a snack while you look up Wikipedia to see what divisions include what in Microsoft :P

I mean as Kowen is saying what does the Business division(Office among other things) have to do with WIN8(Windows division)???



I meant the windows division when I said that, and as I said, windows 8 will be doing fine so-so, until the new product upswing goes away and msft is left with much fewer windows customers.

Well that clears that but you've got to rememeber that Blue is coming out this year along with a bunch of both cheaper tablets/laptops and more mremium ones. We already know that the demand for touchscreen laptops is huge and the PC makers hadn't predicted that so this year they are more prepared for the holiday and school seasons.

So if MS and the PC makers play the cards right alongwith Intel I think the Windows will not only bounce back but it may even take over that pole position again in the battle of the most profitable division inside MS



No, bc msft is transitioning to a period where tablets and smartphones are eating up PC sales, and msft will never have a chance to best Android or IOS, so future sales look mediocre

Yes because 1.5 bilion peope using Original Windows is not enough, not to talk about piracy copies of course that must be 30% of the Windows Market due to China, Korea etc.

To save a lot of aggro, can you stay out of this thread please.  I mean stay out of it all night.  Not interested in your non-stop negativity based on ignorance and nothing but biased opinion.

You have zero clue how the MS business works. zero.
