DesktopLinux.com Poll: How will your organization respond to Microsoft's new license policy?

Anonymous Reader writes: "Microsoft's new licensing program, which goes into effect on August 1, 2002, has had the interesting side-effect of encouraging customers to consider non-Microsoft alternatives as a way to offset burgeoning software licensing and subscription fees, as well as to provide greater reliability and security.

In order to gauge responses and reactions to Microsoft's new licensing strategy, DesktopLinux.com is conducting a survey of organizations and enterprises. Questions focus on alternatives to Microsoft's products and the likelihood of using Linux and certain cross-platform productivity tools. Survey participants are offered the chance to win a copy of the Ximian Desktop Professional Edition by entering in a free drawing, as an inducement take part in the survey."
