Some questions regarding XP licensesLocked
Just have a few questions about volume licenses for Windows XP.
1) Let me see if I understand this right: If I have, say, 60 computers, I need a volume license for XP for the clients (i.e. 60) and then 60 CALs for my server, right? So basically paying twice for each computer?
2) I know that CALs are sold in packs (5, 10, 20 I think?); are volume licenses sold the same way? Can I call a Microsoft retailer (or whatever they’re called) and say “Hey, I need to purchase a 50-pack of XP licenses”, or does it work different? Do I just have the agreement and pay [x] amount for however many licenses I need, and then [x] more if I need [y] additional licenses down the line?
3) On the same subject, what’s the average price? Say I need 60 of them; what would it cost? Microsoft’s site doesn’t really list prices for them; they just say to contact a reseller or something like that.
Thanks! I was never able to understand how all this worked before, maybe someone can shed some light on it 🙂
