SMBs Gain Savings

While consumers get no break on Office 2007, small and medium-size businesses with small and medium-size volume licenses can get half-off the first year's subscription price of Windows 7 and Office 2007. As an added bonus, because Software Assurance is involved, SMBs that purchase Office 2007 get a free upgrade to Office 2010. The only catch: You have to buy before June 30.

Is this the kind of deal for your organization? Would you wait for Office 2010 in June, or take advantage of the Office 2007 deal now? Let me know at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
