Ingram, Tech Data and Westcoast will appear on its Volume Licensing and Fully Packaged Product line-up -with Micro-P joining on the latter - while Enta joins Ingram and Tech Data on its Commercial OEM Windows and Server list. A new category - Commercial OEM Server Only - will be taken to market by Micro-P and Westcoast. The reduction in the number of OEM distributors is particularly stark, with six being cut to three.
