I heard back from one of you that my earlier message regarding
concurrent licensing could be interpreted as approval of Microsoft's
elimination of concurrency. Nothing could be further from my position.
I think it's been a real loss to higher education. I should have put a
smiley face after the word "credit" above.
And despite my fears that other software vendors may follow Microsoft's
lead, I hope they won't. I think we should support those vendors who
continue to offer concurrency by buying their products.
And a special thanks to my earlier correspondent.
