These days I almost feel bad for the guys at Microsoft. They've got what anyone in the world would consider a hit product on their hands, and guess what? Nobody cares. Everybody is so busy gushing over Apple's iPad-myself included-that they are not paying any attention to what's going on in the land of Windows.
To wit: Windows 7, the latest version of Microsoft's operating system, is the hottest-selling product in the company's 35-year history. In five months Microsoft has sold 90 million copies. That's twice the rate of Microsoft's last operating system, Windows Vista.
Microsoft, meanwhile, sits in the middle, generating loads of money-last year's net profit was $14.6 billion-but not much in the way of excitement. That could change, of course. Maybe Project Natal, Microsoft's forthcoming system that lets you control a videogame using hand gestures and no controller, will bring the sexy back in Redmond when it ships later this year.
If not, Microsoft may just have to trudge on, raking in more than $60 billion a year and carrying 25 to 30 cents from every dollar down to the bottom line. A lot of companies would love to be that kind of boring.
