Fueled by a strong demand for Windows 7 and well-managed costs, the company saw a 14% jump in revenue to just over $19 billion, while profit rose an astounding 60% to 6.6 billion.

    "more than 60 million Windows 7 licenses were sold in the three-month period"

    Wow! Good job Microsoft guys! I wonder if that includes the 3 computer license for home users, or is that tracked as a single license that can be sued 3 times? Either way, Windows 7 looks like it's off to a good start.
