I stumbled across Lady Licensing’s blog at http://ladylicensing.spaces.live.com/ which is absolutely full of useful information about how to license various Microsoft products with real-world examples including development environments. It also answers that every popular question – am I better off with a per-processor or per-cal license? Why can’t I find an x64 license for SQL Server 2008?
IMHO all of this information should be on Microsoft.com and should be really well linked and indexed, they do a good job of promoting the use of their products especially to developers however in describing how to buy them they are sadly lacking!
Unfortunately I was unable to attend Emma’s licensing event at Thames Valley Park but will try to get to the next one.
