No, I’m not giving it. That would be like me giving advice on how to do a pencil drawing, or what wine goes with In-N-Out Burger.
A year or so ago, I had a very complex Windows licensing questions that Microsoft was unable to answer. More to the point, no two Microsoft people were able to give me the same answer. I did a little digging and found Paul DeGroot of Pica Communications, author of the only book on Microsoft licensing that I know of. Paul quickly and clearly answered my question, and a couple of rounds of follow-up questions after that. Armed with his information, I was able to solve the particular problem I was having in a less expensive, less painful way than just buying all the licenses. As I was cleaning out my inbox, I found our discussion and remembered, guiltily, that I meant to mention Paul’s services earlier. Under the banner “better late than never” consider this a belated, and strong, recommendation.
