>You will need:
>1)  A MS OS license for each terminal (even though you won't use MS OS 
>on the clients.)
>2)  A MS CAL for each terminal (~$7 each)

*I have these already due to having the Core Desktop School Agreement
(don't use them currently...have no Windows servers that they connect to
:-)  )
>3)  A MS Terminal CAL for each terminal (~$40 each)

*I may buy these...simply to save time, effort, and $$$ on the hardware
end...I hate imaging machines.
>For example, if you have 50 K12LTSP terminals that will access the MS 
>Terminal Server (not necessarily concurrently), you will need 50 CALS, 
>50 TS CALS, and 50 MS OS licenses plus 50 licenses for any application 

*All set here due the aforementioned School Agreement
>Using K12LTSP for clients will not save you any software money at all.  
>It may save you some hardware $$
>It is exactly this kind of licensing **crap** that is driving us to
