  • This will sound crazy for some reason I don't understand, I'm sure.

    Couldn't you just contact Microsoft on the phone? Feel free to explain to me why it's not possible -- I just have the feeling that this is a guy that, if he feels he can blame someone at Microsoft for telling him this, he'll go ahead with it.

    I'm sure there's some obvious thing I don't know about interacting with Microsoft directly, so go 'head and learn me. :)


    You are what you think.

      You're presuming this person is rational. It's more like, "I know what's going on, don't try to confuse me with the facts."

      I showed him the text of the EULA, I pointed out that the server component won't even install on Win2k professional, but to no avail. He couldn't even get the name of the product right, but he knew how it worked. And no, he doesn't know where that letter from MS is, but he knows what it said: the whole client company is violating the license agreement.

      I actually wondered whether he's getting a kickback from Microsoft or is skimming the budget. But I always believe you shouldn't presume evil when ignorance will fit the facts.
