I was on the blower to Viglen earlier and they said that they are still awaiting pricing.
Pricing is fully available both from distributors which provide to all Authorised Education Resellers and from MS direct for the Large Account Resellers. Our pricing from distribution did take longer to recieve - I guess thats due to MS providing it to them and them adjusting it and importing it into their systems before pushing it out.

I've been speaking with Insight, they tried to give me pricing on Friday however the guy I've been emailing says he has been sent the wrong prices from Microsoft. He is expecting the correct information from them on Tuesday, so hopefully I can get some details from him then.
It is indeed 5 FTE's - this is for what is called OVS-ES, basically 999 FTE's and below. There is EES for 1000 FTE's and above.
With regard to pricing - there are a few distributors who can supply it to resellers so that maybe why some have it and some dont. The 1000 plus - all LARs will have this as its from MS, and on the disti side, I assume those who dont have it will get it today.
Hope this helps.

One other thing - and I dont really want to muddy the water further :-) - the above what I put is correct, however there is something else happening this month which means that if you have a requirement, that is worth 300 points, you do have additional options. As mentioned - dont want to muddy the water, and the previous post provides the main facts that you need.
We do indeed have both the Disti pricing and the LAR pricing. I will investigate!

Does anyone know the buy out costing? i know previously it was something like 1.5 x annual payment. What is it with the EES?
There doesn't appear to be a buy out option now. (it used to be 2x-3x more expensive depending of you had a 3 or 1 year agreement). It wasn't much cheaper than Select licenses unless you had a 3 year agreement anyway)

Just fired my email off to Phoenix for some pricing. We dont have a desktop agreement (happy with the OS installed - CALs and office as schools agreements). But this will give us the option to upgrade OS now. I was worrying about the 100 minimum as we dont need that many (70 fte) if the minimum isnt 100 then I know i'll be saving around £1500 a year which is nice. Might splash out on enterprise CALS and get sccm forefront (just renewed sophos - damn) and just keep quiet about the cheaper licencing....
