Microsoft Software Price Increase

Due to the continuing fall of the Australian dollar against the US currency, Microsoft Australia has reluctantly made the decision to increase the pricing of business application software, operating systems, server software and development tools by approximately 10% from 1st October, 2001.

Customers with fixed price Enterprise Agreements or Upgrade Advantage, signed prior to the 1st October 2001 will not be affected by this change. Microsoft has also decided to review price lists on a monthly basis in relation to the USD exchange rate.
