Submission + - Microsoft sees 60% jump in profit with Windows 7 (bbc.co.uk)

An anonymous reader writes: Microsoft has reported a 60% jump in profit, thanks largely to "exceptional demand" for Windows 7.

Net profit came in at $6.66bn (£4.13bn) for the three months to 31 December 2009, up from the $4.18bn it made in the same period a year earlier.

"We are thrilled by the consumer reception to Windows 7," said Kevin Turner, chief operating officer.
