  12. 12. Let’s Begin<br />
  13. 13.
  14. 14. Windows 7 Versions- Available 10/22 unless otherwise noted.<br />Windows 7 Starter <br />NoAero<br />No 64 Bit<br />Windows 7 Home Basic<br />Emerging Markets only<br />Windows 7 Home Premium<br />Includes Aero, Media Center and Touch<br />Windows 7 Professional<br />Does not support Direct Access, BitLocker, BitLocker To Go, BranchCache. <br />Windows 7 Enterprise (available now)<br />Supports all features. Only available via Volume License to Software Assurance customers.<br />Windows 7 Ultimate<br />Supports all features.<br />
  15. 15.
  16. 16. Understanding VL and SA<br />What is Volume Licensing?<br />Volume Licensing is the most affordable way to upgrade your existing PCs to Windows 7Enterprise.<br />Windows licenses available through Volume Licensing are upgrade-only licenses. They do not replace purchasing the initial Windows licenses for software that comes pre-installed on new PCs. <br />Each desktop that runs the Windows 7 upgrade must first be licensed to run one of the qualifying operating systems (Windows Vista (Enterprise/Business/Ultimate) or Windows XP (Professional)—otherwise the PC will not have a valid, legal Windows license. <br />What is Software Assurance?<br />When you acquire Windows 7 Professional licenses, either through Volume Licensing upgrades or through an OEM, you can cover those licenses with Software Assurance to get rights to Windows 7 Enterprise.<br />SA also applies to Office and other Microsoft products.<br />
  17. 17. What Else Do I Get With SA?<br />Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) - MDOP is an add-on subscription license that provides innovative technologies to help better control the desktop PC, accelerate and simplify desktop PC deployments and management, and create a dynamic infrastructure by turning software into centrally-managed services. <br />Windows Virtual Enterprise Centralized Desktop (VECD) for Software Assurance - Windows VECD is an annual device-based subscription that enables organizations to license virtual copies of Windows 7 (or prior OS versions) in a variety of user scenarios.<br />Windows Fundamentals for Legacy PCs - Available exclusively to Microsoft Software Assurance customers, this small-footprint, Windows-based operating system solution is for customers with legacy computers running early operating systems who are not in a position to purchase new hardware.<br />Virtual OS Rights - Use up to four instances of Windows in virtual OS environments for each license that has active Software Assurance coverage.<br />New Version Rights - Receive new versions of licensed software released during the term of your coverage. If you have Software Assurance coverage for your PCs when Windows 7 is released, you will automatically receive rights to use Windows 7 Enterprise on those PCs. <br />
