@engine, they are doing what you suggest.
The reason for the drop in earnings is that they have reduced the value of Surface hardware inventory because they have drastically cut the price.
They pretty much paid Nokia to use Windows phone, and I doubt they are charging other OEMs a significant amount - but there is no point it being free if its not what people want.
@swa66, what is wrong with Libre Office/Open office?
