There is an ongoing controversy in the Microsoft-licensing community. The problem centers on OnLive, a service that provides free Windows Desktop Virtualization, seemingly flaunting Microsoft’s standard licensing program. Normally, Microsoft would take legal action against OnLive, but the current CEO of OnLive is a former Microsoft executive, so no action has occurred. Angry about this, OnLive-competitor tuCloud’s CEO is starting a new company called DesktopsOnDemand that will go feature-for-feature against OnLive, in an effort to force Microsoft to treat all companies equally and fairly. Good luck with that.
