Moscow is cut off from Microsoft

Posted on May 18, 2017  in My Blog

Soon Moscow will no longer rely on Microsoft products. City authorities are going to replace the US mail client, the tools of local manufacturers. Up to now, there are 6,000 computers used in administration, but the plan assumes a change of 600,000 machines.

Some time ago, Vladimir Putin announced a new plan to save the Russian economy by stopping its dependence on Western technologies and placing on its own products. As part of the implementation of this plan, soon with 6,000 computers used in the Moscow administration, Microsoft will soon disappear. It will be replaced by local business programs.

As Artem Yermolaev, head of the city’s information technology department, explains, Exchange computer software and the Outlook email client will be removed from government computers. It will be replaced by the postal system of the government operator Rostelecom PJSC.

So far, the change will cover only 6,000 administration computers, but plans to introduce such a total change on more than 600,000 machines.

Windows 10 on the subscription? Microsoft ensures that only for businesses

Posted on May 8, 2017  in My Blog

A few days ago there were reports that Microsoft was changing the Windows business model and would no longer be selling it, but making it available for subscription. This is partly true, but fortunately, private users do not have to worry about it, because it will only cover companies.

This month will end up with a promotion, where users of older versions of Windows can completely switch to Windows 10 free. A few days ago there was information that could suggest that it was time to speed up, because after that period Microsoft changed its business strategy and converted Windows 10 into service, which would mean that instead of paying a one-time purchase fee, $ 7 a month.

I do not need to add that for many people this would mean having to resign from purchasing plans for Windows 10, but fortunately the information turned out to be not quite true.

Windows 10 will not be a service. However, Microsoft is preparing a special edition of Windows 10 Enterprise E3, which is exclusively for business. And here in fact there will be no longer a one-time license, but a monthly subscription of $ 7 for one job. In return the trader will be able to use all the functions and full protection afforded by the system.
