Microsoft has reported a 6% increase in it’s last three month profits.Office sales boost Microsoft's profitsThe technology company said net income for the three months to the end of September came in at £3.63 billion  compared with £3.38 billion in the same period last year.

The results were helped by strong sales of its Office software package and a small increase in sales of Windows operating systems.

Microsoft reported record quarterly revenue of £10.87 billion.

Equally the growth of the free Open Office suite of business software must also be hitting Microsoft’s sales.
