Microsoft has always been an ardent proponent of digital distribution and now it’s this long held belief that is reflected in its recent decision to
pull Microsoft Money off store shelves
. It has decided that the financial software only be sold as an online download from here on. But the company isn’t in any hurry to renounce boxed software and realizes that an absolute transition to digital distribution will take some time.
A MS employee, Chris Jolley, told Cnet about MS Money sales trends that instigated the current move. About half of the total sales of the financial software in the last one year have been generated through the internet, according to Jolley.
