WSJ.com - Technology: Microsoft Posts 10% Revenue Gain On Strong Software, Xbox Sales "These guys are just rolling in money," Credit Suisse First Boston analyst George Gilbert said. ... "They're producing very strong, top-line results, while at the same time, pushing recognized revenue out," said Credit Suisse analyst Mr. Gilbert. "Tell me in this environment how anybody else could do that." Mr. Gilbert said he had expected Microsoft to glean $6.3 billion in new, annuity-like revenue by July 31; Microsoft now says it already has $6 billion of such sales in the bank, he said."
