The License Beast

  2006-05-09


An article over at Computer World is indirectly one of the best arguments for Free Software I’ve ever read. I’ve attempted to navigate Microsoft’s various licensing schemes for small businesses before, and its always been a confusing and ardous process.

The whole idea of per-seat software licensing seems inherently flawed to me. A great deal of time and resources seems to be wasted on it by both vendors and consumers.
