    even 1 employee using an Oracle JVM had to pay for every employee in the company

    Before that one, they were using a “if one core can run it, all cores must have a license” model.

    If you want to see how well that model did, remember

    • Oracle moved off its success onto this one
    • VMwareCom is now using it
    • Microsoft is using it (want to run a single 2022? License every core in your cluster)

    It makes the SuSE AND SCO seat-license deal look tame.
