Michael Fraser laid out the case in these pages a year ago for how Microsoft could shift its licensing to enable Desktop as a Service in the next year or two. We caught up with Fraser for a largely discouraging update on progress in the last year.
“Microsoft should understand that if they were to offer the ability to do a Windows client OS on SPLA, it’s not going to hurt them. Hopefully, they’ll make that change. If something isn’t done within the next 12 to 18 months, people are going to move on past the desktop.”
