Another point to made along those lines is that IBM QUICKLY shifted the
licensing model for the 515/525 models to a concurrent setup (rather than
the original 'named' concept). IBM should not treat the licensing model
for programming seats differently.

My understanding is the new pricing model is _named_ user, not
concurrent user. So if I have a day operator, a night operator, a
weekend operator, and someone that covers when someone is out sick I
need 4 licenses, not one. Am I incorrect?

Named users vs. concurrent users is a big issue. I've suggested on
several occasions in my articles and on this list that people sit down
and figure out the ramifications to their companies and really hammer
IBM with their concerns. I know that at least one person at IBM is
going to say that the operators can just sign on with the same user
profile, but that sort of answer isn't going to fly in heavily Sarboxed

The last I heard, named is the way IBM is going. Now is the time to
make noise about it.
