Licensing Windows per user, not device

The most significant change introduced with ECS is Windows Client OS licensing. Traditionally, Windows has always been a device-based license model, with additional benefits and access rights granted under Software Assurance (SA). Now, Microsoft offers a user-based licensing model for Windows.

Windows Software Assurance per User allows you to move to a pure per-user licensing model for your entire platform EA and cloud services. Only the user's primary work PC needs to be running a qualified operating system. This provides simple license management by allowing you to count just users with primary PCs, instead of every single device.
