Redmond’s Reader Survey finds Microsoft Licensing Confusing to Most

Interesting study from Redmond Magazine’s current issue – they put together a reader’s survey on initial feelings towards Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 and most importantly, Microsoft software licensing.

Most interesting to us at Miro, a majority of readers said they planned to migrate to the new Windows Server in the near-term which means – keep an eye out for your Microsoft licensing, make sure everything is in order for the migration – avoid an audit at all costs!

Another interesting aspect of the survey is virtualization. The licensing gets tricky here, and many respondents (76%) find Microsoft licensing to be confusing.

Read our post about virtualization for some tips.
