price question
« on: March 08, 2005, 04:51:11 AM »
OK, why is the Serviceman license twice the price of the Administrator license?  ???

Shouldn't it be the other way around? Wouldn't you expect the admin of a corporation more able to pay the higher price? Am I missing something?

My question is why "Sericeman licence price is two times bigger price of Administrator licence?"

Incidentally, the correct English would be "xxx license is twice the price of yyy license."

And there is three misspellings in that one sentence. How do you expect me to pay double when the whole sentence is wrong?

In simple words:

A admin license is restricted to certain systems.
A serviceman license can be used on all systems in the world.

That is making the BIG difference.

My understanding is, it (the cost) is to do with the licencing to Microsoft, as the platform for BART is a full licenced copy of XP.

No missing an oppertunity, MS charge more for the ability to use this on more than 1 unique computer........

Long live Linux!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
