Re: MS won't take this lying down

A few years back this would have been the case but one of our glorious leaders decided to 'save' the public money by cancelling the licensing agreement between UK Gov & Microsoft.

As a result each NHS Trust (and local government) have to have their own licensing agreements with Microsoft, rough estimates have put the cost of this at 3 to 4 times the cost of the original agreement.

So one Trust moving to Linux means the lost of a single medium to large customer for MS.
