OK, I guess that goes both ways. Again, we're innamed user land, yes?
So if Bob and Dave do ILE and Mike and Jane do OPMthen I don't need 4
licenses to each set of compilers, I need 2 to ILE(for Bob and Dave)
and 2 to OPM (for Mike and Jane). Nice. Ofcourse, not all shops are
like that, if everyone shares load, then you willneed 4 licenses.
You're about to answer your own question.
Of course, then comes the fun... if Bob submits ajob that waits on a
dataq listening for compile requests and everyonejust sends dataq
messages to the queue instead of directly issuingthe CRTxxx command is
that only one license? It's only one user! :)Yup.
And this is as far as I'm gonig to go with the
here has been common sense, and if people stop
complaining long enough
to really look at the situation, they'll see that,
like everything in
this life, it's got pros and cons. It's not
perfect, but really given
the hole IBM dug themselves, it's about as good as
it's going to get.
By the way, IBM gets around the issue of a single
user by charging a
minimum number of users per tier. In effect,
they've tier-based the
pricing anyway. Software pricing at some point
becomes as nebulous as
music pricing, and anybody who licenses
off-the-shelf software is
eventually going to look like the RIAA.
