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.

Comment Re:Horses on the River? (Score 1) 1646

Actually, it was Arwen, and she only summoned the flood in the movie. In the books, it was Glorfindel, although i believe Gandalf did say it was his addition of the horses, but that just goes back to simply effects and nothing major, he didn't summon the flood, he just made it look pretty. Actually on second thought It may have been Elrond completely who summoned the flood at the Ford of Bruinen....not sure if Glorfindel just provided a distraction to keep the Nazgul in the center of the river....been a while since I read them...
