Ah... there was a discussion about per-seat licensing, i.e. the end
of 'copy it as many times as you like and install it on as many
machines as you like'.  If this is done in a clean way, that's
perfectly legal, but still not appreciated by the community etc.

Well, but does it affect us in any way?  We all know what's the best
distribution for the server market anyway, don't we?



Given enough thrust pigs will fly, but it's not necessarily a good idea.
