M!cro$oft Quarterly Earnings
Posted 23 November 2002 - 08:15 AM
The main contributor to these profits are OS sales in which they make an 85% profit on each lisence. Thats freakin insane 85% is nuts, most manufacturers are lucky to make 20% profit.
I do not feel bad at all in what we are pursuing on these forums. Knowledge is power and I believe we need a bit more power over this XBL situation.
Oh yeah, and they have been pulling these profit margins for the last decade.

at the end of the day, i wonder if in the future, any rogue employee in M$ care to risk jail or prosecution by releasing ALL the company's source code? LOL .....

If there were other competing companies then the prices would not be so high for M$ products. There are always Pros and Cons for any situation and this is not any different.
The global standard that M$ has provided allows companies and businesses to grow faster than ever before thought possible. As long as the Monoarchy is benevolent then we should be ok.
Also the latest quarter earnings of 3 Billion is more than some Countries entire GNP for the year.

The losses with the Xbox console are just a drop in the bucket.
