Microsoft license scheme forces XP upgrades As I wrote in my last post, Microsoft's biggest competitor on the desktop is old versions of Microsoft. Their new licensing scheme hopes to solve this problem once and for all. It does this by 1) forcing companies to buy new software every time they upgrade their systems and 2) forcing companies to rent software instead of owning it under a license. Businesses are not pleased.
