Microsoft revealed that for the fiscal year ending June 30:
- Sales and marketing expenses increased $1.4 billion or 10%, reflecting advertising of Windows 8 and Surface.
- Surface revenue was $853 million.
- OEM revenue decreased 3%. Excluding the impact of the Windows Upgrade Offer, OEM revenue decreased 10%. This decrease primarily reflects the impact on revenue of the decline in the x86 PC market, which we estimate declined approximately 9%.
There will of course be a huge amount of press on this, but here are some of the best so far:
