"According to a report by the analysts at In-Stat, Average's average cost per CD is about $0.5. These same CDs, such as the Windows XP, can cost consumers up to $200. This $0.5 average cost has remained rather steady since 2003. This cost does not include money spent on marketing or development, but it does explain how Microsoft can continue its profits even in this era of quickly rising of open source software."
