For every euro of Microsoft revenue from Windows Vista in 2007 in the six countries studied, the ecosystem beyond Microsoft will reap almost 14 euro in revenues",  said Mr. Teodor Milev, Managing Director of Micrososft Bulgaria, quoting a research conducted by IDC.

The new versions of Windows, the Office release and Exchange Server are the result of an unprecedented collaboration between Microsoft and its customers. During testing, customers from around the world downloaded more than 5 million beta versions of the three products and provided valuable feedback and suggestions. As a result the new products of Microsoft enable people to work easier and faster, turning the information into potential for development and growth.

During the event Mr. Milev on behalf of Microsoft Bulgaria, presented the observatories of Varna and Smolyan with professional telescopes. Their teams are among the 33 winners in the First national contest for implementing innovative IT projects in education.
