SomePgmr writes "Reports of Microsft's death may have been premature.

The top performer was the Windows Division, reporting under its new name for the first time. Previously it was called "Windows and Windows Live Division." The new name reflects the termination of the "Windows Live" branding; it's also the division that houses Microsoft's Surface tablets. Revenue for the division was $5.881 billion, up 24 percent on a year ago; operating income was up 14 percent at $3.296 billion.

Server and Tools division was up nine percent year on year, with revenue of $5.186 billion. Operating income was also up nine percent, at $2.121 billion. Microsoft showcased System Center revenue, up 18 percent, and SQL Server revenue, up 16 percent, as particular highlights. The division's revenue is still split 80:20 between products and services, with services a solid billion dollar a quarter operation."
