Microsoft is predicting slower adoption after the initial buzz, do to the state of the economy

Microsoft seems well positioned for the future. Its new Windows 7 operating system has been largely well-received by the press and public thanks to an unprecedented public testing program, which saw millions taking Windows 7 for a free spin.

In its latest quarterly results, when factoring in the $1.47B USD in deferred revenue from the Windows 7 Upgrade Option program and sales of Windows 7 to OEMs and retailers before the October 22 launch date, Microsoft posted an overall revenue of $14.39B USD. While down 4 percent from a year ago, this number represents a decrease in losses from previous quarters.
