I don’t really agree with Hans’ “positive” lightning comment, unless you call it positive when you discover that Microsoft licensing is just as bad as VMware… But here you go! A great discussion of SQL Server licensing changes and the new SQL tax!
You remember everyone ranting on the Oracle licensing schemes? You remember everyone ranting on VMware last year when they announced the vTAX licensing scheme?
Today I was reading through the new Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Licensing scheme and got struck by lightning (not in any positive way).
