Re: Microsoft CAL licensing
Have they gone barmy?
Totally bonkers, if you ask me.
The logic is clear, but I would suggest that a system which requires a further license just to use an attached printer is clearly incomplete and not fit for purpose.
I had the misfortune to have to understand this shit about 10 years ago, and I don't think it was quite as barmy. Still nuts though.
The web server bit raises an interesting question. If you have a site hosted externally on a microsoft server and you implement a shop (or indeed any function that involves user accounts and stored user information), is the hosting company paying for the user CALs required?
