  IANAL but it looks just like the new EULA for solaris 10.  Testing and 
demonstration, nothing else.  Period. If it is a production environment 
you need to buy a license.  They also had a nice bit in there about 'we 
will watch to make sure you don't violate this'.  As a professor that 
only produces academic non-commercial services, I find this completely 
unacceptable.  Microsoft sells licenses that academics can afford and 
they still make money by getting fortune 500s to buy their crap.  Why 
Oracle doesn't think that is viable is beyond me.
