Microsoft Mulls Price Layers
Microsoft Corp. customers who upgrade to Windows Server 2003 could end up paying more than expected due to a host of layered add-on services scheduled to ship over the next six to nine months.
While the Redmond, Wash., software developer is remaining tight-lipped, sources said the company is considering charging users for a handful of add-on services that would be released after the initial launch of the product this week in San Francisco. Forthcoming services, they said, include the company's RTC (Real-Time Communications) Server, Active Directory Application Mode and Windows Rights Management, among others.
