Microsoft reports $3.2 billion quarterly loss

Microsoft reported a $3.2 billion quarterly net loss, hurt by charges related to its Nokia phone business and job cuts, and weak demand for its Windows operating system.

The company took a charge of $7.5 billion in the fourth quarter related to the restructuring of its Nokia handset business, which it acquired last year.

Ouch.

    It all has to do with the Nokia write-down. Not a sign of long term trouble … yet.

      I don’t think giving away Windows for free is going to help in the near term.
