Actually I don't think the restrictions are the same. My understanding of
the development lease is that you can have 1000 users banging on the machine
as long as they are all developers developing a commercial package. On the
other hand, my understanding of the iSN deal is that you are restricted to
one interactive session.

i am currently looking at the details, and tenatively plan on doing it.
Waiting for some details from ibm. I think the restictions (commercial use
of the server) are no different than IBM's PartnerWorld 1% lease deal for
"development purposes only" is the same restriction, and has existed for
years. Why would IBM give me a $50-100k box (mostly in software cost) for 7k
without such a restriction? Everyone wanting to be an ASP would dive for
this without such restrictions.! jim franz
