Small Business Discounts Available for Windows, Office Professional Upgrades

Partners will be the tip of the spear of a Microsoft effort to get SMB customers upgraded to Windows 7 and Office 2010.

Redmond announced a 50 percent discount on Windows 7 Professional and Office 2007 Professional for the first year of a subscription to the "open value subscription" volume licensing program. The deal lasts through the end of June, and customers who are on OVS at that point can move up to Office 2010, which is supposed to ship in June or sooner, for free.

Word of the promotion came on the blog of Eric Ligman, global partner experience lead for the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Group. For more details, see Kurt Mackie's article here.
