Microsoft today reported its earnings for fiscal year Q1 2018. Redmond reported a revenue of $24.5 billion, beating analyst expectations. Microsoft’s consumer businesses did surprisingly well this quarter, with Surface revenue increasing by 12% YoY.
Windows OEM revenue also increased this quarter, with the overall revenue increasing by 4%. Revenue from Windows OEM Pro increased by 7% thanks to the “higher mix” of premium SKUs, but the non-Pro revenue declined by 1%. Revenue from Windows commercial products and cloud services grew by 7%, although the overall revenue from Microsoft’s More Personal Computing business declined — and Microsoft’s once again blaming that on its Phone business, which contributed 5% to the 1% decline in revenue from More Personal Computing.
