Open Source
Open Source does not mean free!!!
Free Speech vs. Free Beer
Service Contracts may be required
Non commercial use may be free
Types of Server
Per server -- Per Physical Server, or Virtual instance of a Server
Per socket -- Per CPU in Server
Per core -- Per Total Number of Cores in Server.
Access Licenses
Microsoft refers to Access Licenses as CAL's
Seat -- Per device that will connect to the server
Session -- Per concurrent connection to the server
User -- per user account on the server
Microsoft Licenses
OEM -- Cheapest, but only good for 1 computer
Retail -- Very expensive, but can be used for life
Volume -- Best bet for companies with 10 or more employees. Allows for ghosting of computers
Pirating
Just don't do it
If they are too cheap to use legitimate software they're probably too cheap to pay you.
Final Thoughts
For Volume Licensing always call CDW. They will give you a free quote so you make sure you're buying the right licenses.
