No, it isn't, if my understanding is correct.
Scenario 1: Intranet
N clients * $99 + eventually /Command or /Serve fee.
But you can contact RT to find a more suiting agreement.
Scenario 2: Distributing a commercial application through Internet
An unlimited /Runtime fee + $99 per development workstation
Scenario 3: Distributing an open commercial script through Internet
$99 per development workstation
How much am I wrong, Holger?
In some case the price is near to Lotus Notes one, but the TCO (Total
Cost of Ownership) should be just a fraction.
