Windows With Windows 8 right around the corner, the usual game of reading the end-user license agreements and spotting the different versions is in full swing. Usually, this is a game of ridicule as Microsoft comes up with ever more convoluted version schemes and EULA terms. This time around, though, the company seems to be taking steps to make things easier, as Ed Bott reports.

Why would companies care?

I have to ask this. I mean why would they really care? I know of NO companies that are crazy enough to update all their workstations every Operating System release. We're just barely moving most of the workstations over to 7. Vista was a total crapshoot and we don't even support it for our clients.

I don't see Windows 8 being all that used in the corporate environment, regardless of what Microsoft wants.

Besides, as far as I know, the EULAs have NEVER stood up in court, anywhere. GPL has because it's a copyright rather than just a license.
