Microsoft Licensing and the IT Pro Community Town Hall
This week, I was invited to the IT Pro Community Leaders Town Hall forum at Microsoft in Redmond. This forum was organized by Steve Ballmer. While Steve was not with us the entire time, I was surprised that he had been briefed on the important points that were made even while he was not there.
One point that was made painfully clear was that Microsoft licensing is far too difficult and that getting inconsistent answers is common place. I personally made that point to Bob Muglia after he had heard it from the group. Several others made this clear to Steve B. as well. The best comment of the entire day was when someone told Steve B. that Microsoft IT should have to figure out Microsoft licensing, too. Then there would be some changes.
