I'm curious to see Microsoft's year end quarterly report next month. It's a good thing MSFT took a big loss last quarter. That way this quarter's bad numbers won't look so bad. So far, Ballmer only says Surface tablet sales are 'modest'. Reviews of Windows 8 laptops aren't so good. Less than 50% of users like it. Desktop computers are dinosaurs from the last millennium. The Fiscal Cliff will prevent Server upgrades. The jury is still out on the Lumina 920 smartphone. Maybe XBox helped MSFT holiday sales? MSFT will be trading in the 24-25 range by Vallentine's day.
