@ www.microsoft.com/msft/earnings/FY09/earn_rel_q4_09.mspx#financial- Revenue from Windows operating systems declined reflecting PC market weakness, especially PCs sold to businesses, and a decline in the OEM premium mix. Revenue from Windows was also impacted by a $276 million deferral for the Windows 7 Upgrade Option program. The program, which started June 26, 2009, allows customers who purchase PCs from participating computer makers or retailers with certain versions of Windows Vista to receive an upgrade to the corresponding version of Windows 7 at minimal or no cost. In addition, purchasers of retail packaged Windows Vista from participating retailers in participating markets may qualify for a free or discounted upgrade to the equivalent Windows 7 product. We expect to launch Windows 7, our most recent version of the Windows operating system, in the first half of fiscal year 2010.
- Revenue from the 2007 Microsoft Office system decreased reflecting PC market weakness, a shift to lower-priced products, and pricing promotions.
- Revenue from our Entertainment and Devices Division decreased across most lines of business including Xbox 360 platform and PC game revenue which declined primarily as a result of decreased console sales and revenue per console due to price reductions during the past 12 months, partially offset by increased Xbox Live revenue.
- Foreign currency exchange rates accounted for a $219 million or one percentage point decrease in revenue.
- General and administrative expenses increased $67 million or 7%, primarily driven by increased costs for legal settlements and legal contingencies, partially offset by decreased professional consulting fees as a result of the resource management program. We incurred $193 million of legal charges during the three months ended June 30, 2009.
