Original post: Microsoft's earnings report showed revenue up but profit down. One of the weak spots was client revenue from Vista and XP, which was down versus the same quarter a year ago. This could simply be related to the fact that a year ago was the Vista launch, or it could be an early warning sign. What do you think?
