Windows Red Ink Coming?

  1. I didn't realize it was that bad
    <http://cio.co.nz/cio.nsf/news/0F81408774B573E7CC2575FF00774E75>. In the
    previous quarter, Microsoft's Windows Client revenue had dropped about 15%
    year on year, but in this last quarter, the gap has widened to 29%.

    At this rate, it won't be long before the Windows Client division is losing
    money...

    In fairness, I suppose I should mention this
    <http://cio.co.nz/cio.nsf/news/A2C873B2DBADD6EBCC25763800021E9D>. Talk about
    the triumph of hope over experience: Windows has _never_ sold in large
    amounts as a separate retail product--its sales never really took off until
    Microsoft persuaded the hardware vendors to bundle it with their PCs. So
    this fond belief that Windows 7 will somehow reverse the last 20 years of
    history seems a little ... off in cloud-cuckoo land?
