My experience with software licensing is you would pay for the software
based on the total size of the machine i.e. a license for a 4 processor
machine would be more (maybe not double) than a 2 processor machine.   So if
you were only going to run the software on a 2 processor LPAR (inside a
4-8-12 processor system) then you would actually being paying more than you
needed to.

I don't think this is bothering software vendors, I think they see it as an
opportunity to sell bigger licenses since IBM is planning to sell more
multiple processor machines.

        Along these same lines, I'm curious what the various vendors are
        planning to do regarding LPAR.
