Despite losing hundreds of millons on the Xbox and Xbox 360, Microsoft is here to say, or so they hope. Here’s what Kevin Turner (Microsoft’s COO) had to say:

People forget. Steve [Ballmer, Microsoft CEO] reminds me it took seven, eight, or nine years before Windows was profitable. People forget that. We’re in it for the long term. This is a company committed to invest for the long term. We would like to make money quickly. But that’s not what changes the world. That’s not what innovation allows you to do. Regardless of what you look at, it takes a lot of years. This is a company that is committed to sticking to things that we believe in. Certainly, this is a space we believe in
