Access additional information on the following topics:

  • Where does Windows 8 fit? The need to update desktops may be more urgent for some enterprises than others. Which programs will run best on Windows 8, and which will run into problems?
  • Migration Toolbox: Get a sense of what built-in and third-party tools can help ease migrations to the new OS
  • The Basics of Windows Licensing: Microsoft's licensing structure can be challenging, so make sure that you’ve subscribed to the right tier -- and aren’t paying for more than you need.
