An SA Oops
I tried to become an expert in Software Assurance. I thoroughly read a report
from Scott Braden, who writes
a column for Redmondmag.com
, about negotiating with Microsoft. I also read
a 100-plus-page report from Directions on Microsoft and then devoured everything
Microsoft put out. Despite having written a
on the subject, I still readily admit to being confused.
And I was plenty mixed up last week when I said that Microsoft's new desktop
optimization tools were free for SA customers and $10 a year for non-SA end
users. Like Mel Gibson at a traffic stop, I clearly misspoke. It is $10 a year
for SA end users and not available to the rest of us. Here's
what Microsoft has to say on the matter.
