Microsoft this morning announced financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2022, which ended on December 31, 2021. The results show that the revenue for the quarter was US$51.7 billion, a year-on-year increase of 20%; the net profit was US$18.8 billion, a year-on-year increase of 21%.

At the earnings conference, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said that he was satisfied with the performance of Windows 11 after it was officially launched three months ago.

However, Nadella seems to be tight-lipped about the specific numbers. He pointed out that compared to previous versions, users have a higher usage rate of Windows 11, and the system quality is also higher. He also revealed that Windows systems gained more market share during the quarter.

Finally, Nadella also praised the introduction of Windows systems to other services, such as the addition of coupons and price tracking to the Edge browser, which has saved users $800 million.

Returning to the financial report, Office 365 commercial product revenue increased by 14%, Microsoft 365 consumer product revenue increased by 15%, cloud computing business revenue increased by 26%, Xbox content revenue increased by 10%, and Surface business revenue increased by 8%.
