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 10,000-word PDF 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.
