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. -- Paolo Russo [pa--russo--perd--com] _________________ PERD s.r.l.
