Microsoft is set to win a major victory in its battle against Linux by agreeing a new framework deal for software licences across UK government departments.

The software giant has an existing 'memorandum of understanding' (MoU) with central government procurement watchdog the Office of Government Commerce (OGC) which expires next year.

As part of a mooted new three-year deal, Microsoft will offer a software and support package at volume discount rates across the UK's public sector.

And will take the money back in the next 4-6 years by increasing s/w prices, or better making things require complete upgrades and more money:))

I think You really need to send Your CV to Microsoft...they would gladly accept You...'cause till now...they are dumb enough to think that noone knows their plans for the future
