Your boss needs to pay only you. If he pays for boxes and attatched services 
he might not be able to afford you anymore.

He needs to pay only for the work to maintain installations and/or for 
customizing and developing.

Your payments will remain market prices of your work.

It's just a bad habit and mostly unnecessary to additionaly buy boxes.

Box prices, prices payed for copies, are market prices often based on 
aritificial scarcity.

Payments for markets with aritificial scarcities will result in lower budgets 
for real markets. See the labour market react with unemployment and lower 
wages. See even artifical surplus created on the laybour market, cutting 
"laybour costs", feeding artifical scarcity payments.

See how market prices for your work, for all scarcities realy alterable by 
humans, can rise?  When artificial scarcities and scarcities given by nature 
can no longer distort market prices into "given conditions" of stiff common 
costs and particular benefits?
