So, if we have 30 ADTS developers, then we should be paying in the
ballpark of:
1 initial license x $795 = $795
30 seats x $160 = $4800
Total = $5595

Or am I completely misunderstanding you?

I want to make sure I don't mislead you: both the initial license (it
might be $795 vs. $700 now that I think of it) and the annual SWMA are
per-seat. The SWMA is 20%, so would be $160 rather than $140, but you
get the idea. I don't know how many seats you're looking at.

But the other point is that it's the exact same price as ADTS. And
AFAIK, you can mix and match: you can have RDi seats for you day-to-day
usage and then one seat of ADTS for emergencies (although these days the

emergencies that require SEU are few and far between).

Go to the EGL Cafe to see my blog. You'll see more of my travails with
RDi-SOA and EGL over the coming weeks.

Really? It's the first time I've heard that pricing. If we can get
pricing from our business partner, it would go a long way in
our managers to get RDi for everyone.

I should probably try to get out to DevCon in October and check out
Web Development track. We've just started looking at PHP. It might be
good to get a bigger picture.
