[K12OSN] Crossover office

I talked with a sales rep at Codeweavers today, as it so happens, on
the same issue.  You can use the professional version on an LTSP
server, but you do have to pay for the number of concurrent licenses
in use at any given point in time.  I was quoted $38 per user/license,
which I'm assuming was an academic price.

I am considering my options of Crossover office vs Win Server 2003 for
our school. We can get licences for Win Server 2003 quite cheap, but
it would be easier to manage if we only had one server to maintain.

It also comes down to costs. The educational pricing for Crossover
office is $52 where as the server version is $1500 for 25 licences.


If I install Crossover office professional on my K12LTSP server, will
all the clients be able to concurrently access it? Or would I have to
get the server version?


If we can use Crossover office Professional that would be the
preferred soln, if we had to pay for the server version for concurrent
access then WS2003 would obviously be a better solution.

We can get it for about (annual) $65 server licence, $6.50 each
terminal licence. We get Office XP for free.


Any advice?
