I'm sure many will be out here soon telling you to go the Open Office way but as far as your DB is concerned try MaxDB or something similar I don't think moving DB's will be expensive, depends what front end you're using though. I'd still recommend taking some pain now and moving out to open source DB's that might be good for you...

Try thunderbird for mail (never used it myself but always read good reviews)

Ask about volume licencing
You pay a set price for upto a certain amount of licences, it will work out a lot cheaper than you have been quoted so far

Take a read of here, it's the microsoft volume licencing site for companies having less than 250 computers

There is a phone number to call and speak to a real person for help on the right hand side of the page

Thats for 150 copies of the full product, you only need to buy one product disc, with 150 licences start here, but there are many businesses that deal in volume licensing

Yes the open-license for 150 machines was £378 per license and 1 disc.
Our 4 or 5 db's are custom made and have taken years to develop so re-creating these is a HUGE job again...but maybe not a £50,000 job lol
Thanks for input

see if that business can become a microsoft partner.. u get reduced software that way. My workplace is a SME and we r a MS partner (we dont do any software but are a hardware company).. You just go on their website and pay £500 and you get their MS action packs every 4-6 months. We get like 12 licenses....of nearly everything.. and 1-3 licenses for the server based software.. !!

Try them.. they have packages for larger companies as well!!

The partner license if I am not mistaken is for up to 2 years only, where by at the end you have to have a product to sell based on ms products. It is aimed at software vendors.

I should be able to help you there as i'm a Microsoft partner and can get some excellent deals on volume licensing. I'll send you a pm.

Within the Microsoft Action pack there are 10 Microsoft Office 2007 Enterprise edition licenses for internal use and evaluation purposes. The price is £199.00 + VAT.

For 150 MS Office licenses the cheapest method is volume licensing.

From Microsoft:

The Microsoft Action Pack Subscription is designed for all businesses whose primary function is to (i) sell, service and support or (ii) to build solutions on the Microsoft platform or provide solutions based on Microsoft products and technologies to independent, third-party customers. Examples of qualifying businesses include accounting professionals, consulting service providers, independent software vendors (ISVs), independent hardware vendors, large account resellers, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), small business specialists, support providers, system integrators, system builders, training providers, Web designers, value-added resellers and value-added providers that sell more than 75 per cent of their products and services to customers outside their own company.

If you upgrade each machine with say some memory, you can purchase an OEM licence

An OEM software per workstation would work out expensive. Microsoft volume licensing would be the most cost effective method.
