Microsoft licensing not expected to get simpler anytime soon

Posted on Friday, October 09 2009 @ 08:25:28 CEST by

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer knows his company's licensing is too complex, but he said you shouldn't expect it to get any simpler anytime soon:
While he acknowledged the problem, Ballmer said it wasn’t likely to be solved anytime soon. “I don’t anticipate a big round of simplifying our licensing,” he said.

Ballmer admitted that Microsoft's licences had some “gotchas” in the fine print, and said that “our people” shouldn’t necessarily be hassling companies over issues in that fine print. “I’m sure we have fine print we don’t need. We’re not saints,” he said.

But he claimed that the finer details of the licensing system give some companies the opportunity to save money. “Customers always find an approach which pays us less money,” he claimed.
