This is an example of “double ethical ambiguity” (like we called it in school – a long time ago (in a galaxy..)).
As NAV2013 is the best release ever (which I really mean in many ways) .. and can even sometimes called “the release that NAV2009 should have been” .. then why is Microsoft pleased to announce an extension to the availability of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009?
Well .. I guess it’s positive to postpone for some .. because this way, ISV’s and parters get more time in prepping their solution for NAV2013, and still be able to sell their current solution (you need money to make money ;-)). So for that matter .. Positive.
Extension until 30 June 2014
Anyway, note that new customers will be able to license NAV 2009 using the Advanced Management edition of the BRL until 30 June 2014. You read it right: the Business Essentials edition of the BRL model is not included, which means it will no longer be available for new customers after 30 November 2013.
