Does This 1 Number Make Microsoft a Buy Today?

Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT  ) has announced that it has sold 60 million Windows 8 licenses since debuting its newest operating system, a figure that approximately matches its Windows 7 sales. However, in this video, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner tells us the biggest difference between the launch of Windows 7 vs. Windows 8: The mobile revolution had not yet begun when Windows 7 launched back in 2009. That means that only matching those previous numbers, instead of exceeding them in this new mobile landscape, may not be enough.

One reason Microsoft is finding it hard to compete in today's mobile landscape is because of the dominating players who were the first movers in that space, like Apple. Apple has been a longtime pick of Motley Fool superinvestor David Gardner, and has soared 219.20% since he recommended it in January 2008. David specializes in identifying game-changing companies like this long before others are keen to their disruptive potential, and he helps like-minded investors profit while Wall Street catches up. I invite you to learn more about how he picks his winners with a free, personal tour of his flagship service, Supernova.
