What's a SLE Desktop licence then? At Euro47 per year, it sounds entirely reasonable compared with a classic corporate Windows desktop setup.
If I read it right, SLE Server licences vary from Euro300 per year to Euro1200 per year with a typical option being Euro600ish, depending on level of support. An organisation wanting 50 would likely want a lot more at 300 or 600 than at 1200. A reasonable quantity but hardly worth making a huge fuss about for anyone, especially if the bod on the end of the phone is making a ***t of himself asking for a discount beyond that already available through standard volume discounts
Shame Barack and El Gordo largely only see fit to spend billions of taxpayers money when it's wasted on failed bancasinos, and everyone else who needs a few quids worth of strategic investment (you, me, Bill's antivirus campaign, Novell, whoever) gets to starve.
