SA Customers Get Free Tools

Remember when Microsoft bought application virtualization vendor Softricity? Sure you do. If you're a Software Assurance customer, you'll be getting this virtualization software free as of January. Softricity's SoftGrid is pretty cool. By streaming the apps, software can be deployed more flexibly. Better than that, the software isn't physically installed and doesn't mess with the registry, reducing conflicts. If you don't have SA, SoftGrid will cost you $10 per PC per year.

Find out if SA is right for you by reading my hard-hitting free special report.
