Bolstered by an ‘exceptional demand’ for its new operating system Windows 7, software major Microsoft’s profit soared 60 per cent to $ 6.66 billion in the last three months of 2009.

Microsoft raked in record revenues to the tune of $ 19.02 billion for the second quarter ended December 31, 2009.

The amount represents a jump of 14 per cent as compared to the same period a year ago.

“Exceptional demand for Windows 7 led to the positive top—line growth for the company,” Microsoft’s Chief Financial Officer Peter Klein said in a statement on Thursday.

Windows Seven has given a new life to Microsoft after the Vista Drought.

Windows Seven will surely rule the future (just like Win XP).
