Microsoft Q1 earnings report swings Windows 8 in like a lamb

With the dawn of Windows 8 coming in this next quarter, it's time for Microsoft to brace itself for a big change - or what they hope will be a big change after a rather modest financial report here in their Q1 report for 2012. This report has them coming in at $16.01 billion in revenue, which is good, with $5.31 billion in profit, which is certainly OK, but not spectacular for the beast of a company.
