Big changes ahead for Windows: 'We've got to monetize it differently,' says Microsoft exec - GeekWire

Microsoft's metamorphosis continues

"PHIL WINSLOW, CREDIT SUISSE: Are you going to start losing money on Windows?

KEVIN TURNER: Yes, let me — that’s not any conversations that we’ve had. The thing about it is, though, we’ve got to monetize it differently. And there are services involved. There are additional opportunities for us to bring additional services to the product and do it in a creative way. And through the course of the summer and spring we’ll be announcing what that business model looks like. At the same time it’s wonderful to see these nine-inch and below devices explode, because that was an area, candidly, I was blocked out and I had no share of what was getting built. So it’s a very fascinating transition for us."
