Microsoft Corp is expected to report a sharp rise in quarterly profit this week, boosted by surging revenue as strong computer sales drive demand for its Windows operating system and Office software.

Investors will also look at its full-year outlook to see if the world's largest software maker can maintain momentum from a strong first quarter in the face of growing concerns over the U.S. economy. Microsoft reports fiscal second-quarter results on Thursday.

I bet that's right as well! I've bought Windows XP home licenses this week, none of which will ever be used, just because I'd have had to pay more to get the same spec machine without it. (All machines are running really well under Fedora 8)
