> Subject: [LICENSING] Red Hat
> Do any of you have word on the educational program for Red Hat Linux?
> Here is what I have been hearing:
> - expect a formal program end of next week (e.g., Dec4 or Dec 5)
> - expected to have both site licensing and per unit pricing
> - have heard that student site licensing may be $2500/year
> (no telephone or online support, just updates).
> - have heard that servers will be $50 and desktops/laptops
> will be $25. Updates only, no telephone or online support
> - if you want support, then near list price
> I am encouraging Red Hat to consider providing telephone
> support to central IT organizations if they will triage calls
> for the campus. Also quantity discounts since it costs money
> to do PO's (and for them to handle).
> Of course, until there is a formal program, these are all
> speculation and possibilities.
> There is also the fedora project for those who prefer a
> community approach and no license cost.
> Anyone have a good scoop on what to expect?
> Happy Thanksgiving!!
