I bring you a genuine insider mini-scoop although it's not really about Apple... it's about Microsoft. This news hasn't been made public yet but I'll spill the beans anyway. As an employee in a large UK national charity, I was made privy to this news today -- this actually affects our own income for reasons I will not go into here. Microsoft have decided to give away the first 50 licences to any UK charity free. That includes OSs, Office & other apps... absolutely free -- a massive saving to small & medium-sized charities. Before, they had discount-licensing but this will be a huge give-away. Many people in the office were saying 'Good for the sector' but I also see the PR & strategic value for MS here. They appear to be the good guys, get the kudos and yet effectively, and with the power of a monopoly, lock people in to a MS solution for years to come... What could unfold from this, is anyone's guess. Extend it globally and also to education authorities -- free stuff for everyone. Crafty buggers.
