ISVs Head Explodes, film at 11

November 25, 2003

No, I’m not kidding. If I even think about thinking about Microsoft’s license options for another second, my head will explode. Figuring out what license you need is about the most painful thing I’ve ever been though (and am still going though for that matter).

Is it a CAL? A TS-CAL? Is that a User CAL, Device CAL, User TS-CAL, or Device TS-CAL? Is that a CAL and a TS-CAL that you need? OK then, is it a FPP, Open Business License, Select Open Business License, or FPP Open Select Selective OEM System Builder Excalibur-Is-Cool License? Hello? Sir? Would you like a napkin that gray matter?
