Microsoft could find its money making machine come to a half (even if for just a few months) if reports are to be believed. The company could soon report a quarterly loss – it’s first in 20 years.
CBS News claims that Microsoft earned around $5.3 billion this last quarter, but also leaked tons of money as it invested very heavily in its Internet division.
During the same timeframe, the company lost somewhere around $6.2 billion as it struggled to compete in the online domain against Google.
The recent Windows 8 launch it seems will not help matters that much, as analysts believe the OS will only take off during the middle of 2013.
The desktop version of Windows 8 is being described as a confusing working environment for business, and a lot of users are missing the Start Menu quite a bit more than Microsoft anticipated.
