Microsoft to expand WGA to corporations

Over at Microsoft Watch, Jason Brooks opines on the efforts Microsoft has spent to bring “Windows Genuine Advantage” to its corporate customers:

“What's worse, it appears that Microsoft has been expending significant development resources to make these expanded controls a reality. It seems to me that there's been a rather important and rather delayed product in the works that could've benefited from the developer hours that Microsoft had to devote to building the self-hosted activation server and associated tools required to bring WPA to Microsoft's biggest customers.”

There's an interesting challenge here: Microsoft may squeeze a few more licenses out of its corporate customers at the cost of alienating a few of them into switching to less difficult solutions.
