Microsoft SPLA + 33.4%
Microsoft OPEN +7.5%
Microsoft Open Value Subscription +33.4%
Microsoft SELECT +24.6%

What won't be affected?
Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and Full Packaged Product (FPP) will not be affected, these are supplied with the hardware pre-installed or purchased from retail stores.
Customers with existing Enterprise Agreements or Enterprise Subscription Agreements have pricing set for existing products at the point of signing for the term of the agreement. This means that on 1st July this pricing will not be affected.
If you wish to add additional technologies to these agreements, in order to offer price protection, you may wish to consider adding them prior to 1st July 2012.
