    Following Microsoft's Q3 FY2014 earnings report from last night I thought we should take a look at the big picture behind the numbers and address some of the key themes from the company's analyst conference call (which you can find here)
    Let's have a quick look at the numbers for Q3. Revenue was $20.4 billion, gross profit was $14.5 billion and operating income was $7.0 billion. While adjusted revenue grew 8%, earnings per share (which came in at $0.68) grew slightly less at 5%.
    Clearly Microsoft is not in any kind of financial trouble. I say this despite not exactly being a Microsoft fan. I own and use exactly zero of their products so I'm simply looking at the business as a technology investor here. Microsoft is growing slowly. No, they're not even growing as fast as Apple and they certainly are not growing anywhere close to as fast as deeply mobile companies like Facebook. But they're growing and are on very strong financial footing.
