, and amid the breakdowns of the Windows Division's revenue increase and the Server & Tool division's year-over-year whatever
is some information our readers actually care about.
Specifically, the Entertainment and Devices Division, which includes everything Xbox, experienced an 11 percent year-over-year decrease in revenue as compared with 2011; $3.77 billion versus $4.23 billion, respectively. Still, the Xbox 360 was the best-selling console in the United States, as it has been for the last 22 months.
As a whole, Microsoft's Q2 revenue (read: gross income) rang up at $21.45 billion, up three percent when compared to 2011, but its operating (read: net) income went down
by three percent to $7.77 billion, which is only enough to buy about 26.7 billion mechanical pencils.
