Caldera drops license bombshell

Author: JT Smith

The Register's take on Caldera's new per-seat license.
"Per-seat licensing is a rarity in the Unix world. That's because workstations are
traditionally capable of supporting several concurrent users. IDC's Dan Kusnetzky
told us last week that the next batch of IDC figures will create a new category in
recognition of this. Linux usage is divided three ways between server, workstation
and 'serverstation', where a workgroup server is doubling up as a workstation."
