"The Gartner Group issued a scalding advisory this morning
claiming that Microsoft's amended policy on reimaging Windows CDs
will net Redmond an extra $11 billion in revenue."
"Gartner says that despite further amendments relieving its
biggest enterprise customers of the burden since it first raised
the issue in August, the new imaging policy hits smaller and medium
sized Microsoft customers hard."
"Gartner notes that Select or Enterprise customers are exempt
from reimaging licenses, a concession that Gartner reckons has
saved these customers up to $2.3 billion. But the draconian new
restrictions still apply to Open (aka MOLP) customers."
