Microsoft Defends New Windows Server Licensing


Will Microsoft’s new licensing changes create problems for its customers? Not according to Microsoft.

After Texas law firm Scott & Scott issued its analysis of the changes to Windows Server licensing, Microsoft responded by addressing each of Scott & Scott’s points in an email. The issues described by Scott & Scott, Microsoft contends, would be limited to a very small customer segment, and even then wouldn’t be as significant an issue as claimed.

The law firm contended that Microsoft Software Assurance customers would face a “confusing transition period,” when they would have to figure out how many licenses to buy after their current Software Assurance term was up.
