Microsoft profited from the death of Windows 7

Windows 10 has finally become a machine for pumping money.
Microsoft has reported on its results for the second quarter of fiscal 2020. They reflect the surge in sales in the PC market, which occurred in anticipation of the end of support for Windows 7.

Recall, Microsoft stopped supporting Windows 7 on January 14, 2020. The company received $ 36.9 billion in revenue, up 14% from last year. Statistics provided by Microsoft show that Windows has again become a “money pumping machine.”

The More Personal Computing (Windows licensing) business generated 13.2 billion revenue, more than the combined revenue from the cloud and Office applications and Dynamics CRM.

More Personal Computing’s revenue grew by only 2%, but Windows OEM licensing for manufacturing partners was up 18%. Revenue from commercial Windows customers and services also jumped 25%.
