Windows Microsoft is continuing its efforts to simplify its product lines, and has cut the number of versions for the next release of Windows Server down from twelve to just four: Datacenter, Standard, Essentials, and Foundation. Pretty straightforward. Windows Home Server gets axed, but then again, I don't think anybody bought Windows Home Servers anyway.

That can still stop or complicate "hey, that software we were doing for our needs turned out good, maybe we can sell it to others".
Or, in the volatility of corporate setting, can easily bring headaches with spun off divisions and such.

Don't look at it like Free Software advocate - corps adopt it more or less only when they can exploit it to their benefit.
