The legal stuff was excpeted....I'm actually more interested in these two sentences from the report:

sales in the information worker unit, which oversees Office, grew to $2.7bn from $2.3bn in the year-ago quarter. ...The information worker unit, which was not hit by legal charges, saw operating income rise 14 percent, to $1.9bn.
Let's do the math, folks -- Revenue $2.7 billion, operating income $1.9 billion, or 70% of revenue.  70% margin -- nice work if you can get it.
