Microsoft is seeking to simplify the software licencing for it's server products in the area of virtualization.

The press release can be found here.

According to this eweek article, Microsoft isn't going to be better off by the change. I'm sure they will continue to make a profit but just not as much, this will obviously make it more attractive to purchase servers with a view to virtualization. From a hardware sellers view this is a boost to them as they will obviously ship larger boxes.

So a winner all round accept for MS, after speaking to my friendly Microsoft sales guy he said ... "it was time for us to share the Love". Yes, that did make me smile (and perhaps a little sick :-)
