At its Small Business Summit, Microsoft Corporation announced it is offering small businesses a seven-day free trial of business credit-report checks and a six-month trial of Microsoft Office OneNote 2003, as long as they are willing to take part in the Windows Genuine Advantage program (for Windows 2000 or Windows XP). The software giant is offering the credit-report service through a Credit.net service that lets businesses quickly check the credit of vendors they are looking to do business with, the company said. Microsoft Office OneNote 2003 is note-taking software that includes a voice-recording function so users can ensure they take accurate meeting notes. Small businesses also have access to free downloads of Microsoft Windows Defender, Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer V2.0, Microsoft Software Inventory Analyzer and Photo Story 3 for Windows through WGA, Microsoft said.
