UK plc hates MS licence terms (true)

Author: JT Smith

The Register reports: "his week Microsoft delayed the imposition of controversial new terms and
conditions for volume purchases.

The start date for the new and potentially much more expensive regime is now 31
July 2002, ten months later than originally planned.

But UK licensing manager Duncan Reid told us today that Microsoft will not review
the terms for the new system. Instead, the company hopes to use this time to explain
to its customers why the licensing scheme is better than the old one."
