A while back this was on c9, http://channel9.msdn.com/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=125355, does any one know where I may be able to download the code?
I'm thinking of using this for a project, I may need help, so any offers would be welcomed....
I run a Service & Support company, which deals mostly with the SME market place.
When speaking with customers and they want Office 2003 and you tell them it's going to cost £320 the response is, "how much!"
So when your talking £320 x 5 or £320 x 10 that's alot of cash for a small company to swallow.
You would think that Volume Liecensing would be the answer, it's not for this number of PC's it works out more expensive!
Now, this is what is odd. Microsoft Small Business Server 2003 is great value for money! £800 for Windows Server 2003, ISA Server 2004 and Exchange 2003 with 5 CAL's!
So why can't it be done with other software, as they have gained that market?
One of the highest cost's on a new basic office PC today (not high spec!) is the OS so why not sell it for £49.99? instead of £89.99 (oem).
I agree it cost's money to develop software, but with office isn't 80-90% of the product done? Do they have to charge as if they were writing it from the start each time.
Don't get me wrong, I like MS and the software the produce, I want to sell more of it, but when your trying to sell a £320 to someone who can "get it of there friend" for £2, what do you do? Shop them and loose the customer and put myself out of business?
I do encourgae legal software usage, but it's hard at these prices.
What do you think?
