"MSFT headcount down 8 percent year over year #pcbuzz"


"# Business: $4.75 billion, down 3 percent from $4.88 billion a 
year earlier. # Online Services Business: $581 million, down 5 percent 
from $609 million a year earlier. # Entertainment & Devices: $2.9 billion, down
11 percent from $3.26 billion a year earlier."


"Outside its Windows franchise, most of Microsoft's other businesses continued to show 
weakness. Sales in the division that includes its Office software were flat, while 
its online services division's revenue declined 5% to $581 million from the prior year, 
despite the high-profile launch of the Bing search engine."

Microsoft employees...


"if you take out the deffered revenue out of the report, microsoft missed on the 
revenue side by about half billion dollars and barely makes it on the earning
 side due to cost cutting.  summary: expect more cost cutting since that seem to 
have neautralized the revenue miss."

| Update The figures are now in. That other 
| OS client division brought in $2.8 billion 
| more revenue than in the same quarter last 
| year. The sad thing is that $1.7 billion of 
| revenue counted this quarter was deferred 
| income from sales of Vista (with upgrade 
| rights to â7â). That means they got a 20% 
| increase in revenue when PC production 
| returned to normal from the slump. That 
| means no âpopâ in the quarter in which â7â 
| was released. The CPU and PC sector saw 30 
| and 15% increases. Up-selling is just not 
| workingâ


Sinking ship keeps lying and lying! The CFO has quit.

Microsoft is already throwing out there some fake sales #s (just like
it did with Vista).

Some people expect layoffs to expand.
