The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker and developer Chris Bledsoe discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Eric and Chris discuss Microsoft's recent quarter. The two key in on how Microsoft's servers and tools division is overtaking Windows as the company's second largest revenue driver. Looking at the data of Fool.com visitors, Chris notes that 26% of visitors are coming from an Apple operating system, a number that's indicative of Microsoft's declining Windows figures. However, he also points out that recent figures from researcher IDC indicate that Microsoft has more than a 70% share of its Window Server OS on new server shipments.

Microsoft is riding the revolution. However, the company is just one way to play this amazing opportunity for technology investors.
