They are seemingly quite confused about this kind of situation, but
basically end up saying "one license per workstation that benefits"
which in this case could mean many things. They also don't seem to have
quite grasped that rather than gaining desktop business like this, they
are losing server business to whichever random company's scanner came
preinstalled on the muppet clients' workstations.

I wish they'd see the light. It would make my job so much easier.

Still, IMHO they are still the best option for desktops & all -- in
combination with a good (or at least adequate) backup system.
