We are grateful to Alberta Education for making it possible to continue offering the following with respect to Windows 7:
1. For schools covered under the Alberta Provincial Microsoft License (PML) eDesktop agreement – If Windows is requested, we will provide computers that have a qualified licensed copy of Windows. Then, the school’s IT department will purchase (at a discounted price under the PML e-Desktop Enrollment) a Windows 7 or 8 Enterprise Upgrade License. The majority of schools in Alberta are part of this agreement. If you are unsure, please contact your IT support to find out.
2. For schools not covered under the Alberta Provincial Microsoft License eDesktop agreement – If Windows is requested, we will purchase Windows 7 Professional under the Microsoft Registered Refurbisher Program and install on the computers.
3. For non-school recipients of our computers – If Windows is requested, we will charge a $10.00 fee per computer to have an authorized copy of Windows 7 Professional or Windows Vista installed. This fee will cover the cost incurred by Alberta CFS to purchase a Microsoft Certificate of Authorization for each computer.
