Microsoft Corp has reported a drop in its quarterly profits, as Office software sales slowed ahead of a new launch, offsetting a solid but unspectacular start for its Windows 8 operating system, Reuters has reported. Net income slid to $6.4bn in the fiscal second quarter, from $6.6bn in the year-ago quarter. Overall sales rose 3% to $21.5bn, Microsoft said. Office revenue fell about 10% to $5.7bn, while Windows sales, which included some deferred revenue from the launch of Windows 8 last October, jumped 24% to $5.9bn, the company said.
