Hi,



As we are upgrading all of our hardware at Victoria Radio Network very soon, I am investigating the possible use of Windows 2003 server on our new server PC. The cost could be the stumbling point however, so I wondered if anyone was aware of charity discount schemes for hospital radio stations ?



On the Microsoft website it seems to indicate that they do not offer discounts to hospitals, but I would be interested to hear how other stations purchased their win2003 software for use with Myriad/Autotrack.



Thanks,

Peter

Craig,



Thanks, I will give them a buzz and see what they say. Seems that it costs about £150 for the Standard Edition with minimum licences.

HI all,



you may not of heard of Charity Technlogy Exchange ..



http://www.ctxchange.org/ctx/my_account/default.asp



They have a relationship with microsoft and give Charities significant discount.



To give you an idea Windows Server 2003 @21 quid.



They do need proof that you are a registered charity, and work with the Charity Commission to validate you!
