The new SAS contract we just signed dropped unlimited copies, so we have
removed it from all but one training lab. To the best of my knowledge,
SAS Institute has always counted each PC that is able to run SAS, not
concurrent users. We're putting it on our Citrix server instead. Server
licensing is now based on number of CPUs. Students can also get it on
their PCs. Our rep says that most universities really like their new
approach & we are one of the few that are slammed by it. We'll be
working hard over the coming year to remove it from as many servers as
