Microsoft Corp. will make its new Windows Vista operating system available for sale and download online, marking a new step for the software company, which has previously sold Windows only on packaged discs or pre-loaded on computers.
I think this is a smart move, since people have busy lives. I have been able to obtain corporate software electronically instead of waiting for the CD to come in for Symantec/Vertas and GFI. (Note, most retail stores do not sell corporate licensing that you can go in and buy and walk out. Also, too this brings in the mileage and time of an employee to but the product.)
