Talk about perfect timing.
With everyone wondering where to invest now, Microsoft says it's busting sales records and raising its full-year earnings forecast.
It's already up to $35 in after-hours trading.
It's also quieting Vista critics -- 100 million units have now shipped, and Windows Client sales were $4.3 billion in the quarter, up from $2.6 billion a year ago.
Xbox sustained profitability, online services trimmed its losses and Microsoft's eons of work building overseas markets is paying off.
So will MSFT finally approach $40?
