Well.... that may be different... we're upgrading as well, and
counting processor cores is affecting new software prices. I think
that's legitimate, although the Ka-Ching is sometimes deafening!
Most vendors are willing to negotiate (to a degree).
However, Gentran for i saying you need 2 cores has a different feel--
they're not asking how many processor cores might their product run
on, but telling that you need at least 2 cores to get acceptable
performance. That -definitely- sounds PC!

Most software vendors (including IBM for Gentran) are asking for the number
of licensed cores. Not a one has asked about CPW.
