Got another email today from the same email address which said, among other
things:

"To date we assume you have decided not to participate in this voluntary
program. We will look to disengage any further communication related to
this mater and close this analysis. "

1) It says it is voluntary.
2) It says "we assume you have decided not to participate . . . " If they
read the email I sent they would not have to assume anything.
3) If this is a canned response, they need to correct the spelling of
"matter". :)

Movin' on down the road.

MS was going to do an audit 2-3 years back. I told them I politely
declined. Since we had less than 10 employees in the office and had
standardized on Google Apps in 2009, I didn't see the point. They dropped
it.

Yes on Tuesday.

Having been through 3 Microsoft audits I don't see them asking our
opinion.

You going Tuesday?

This doesn't apply just to Office, it also applies to Windows (OS).
But to my knowledge this is an optional thing.

Is this legit? Do I need to do this? Why would I want to do this? We
use
google apps, not outlook, word, excel, etc.

I think we may have a grand total of 5 MS office users.

Thanks.
