Microsoft revamps its licensing program
Author: JT Smith
InfoWorld reports that Microsoft today raised the curtain on its new licensing program. The new agreement allows customers with 250 or more computers to license enterprise software as a subscription service. The license, named the Enterprise Agreement 6.0 Subscription Program, lowered its minimum number of computers requirement -- the previous minimum was 500. A Microsoft spokesperson says "80 percent of our customers will see no change to their licensing costs or the costs will decrease."
