VMware will not raise licensing costs for quad-core processors

Richard Garsthagen. Technical Marketing Manager at VMware, unofficially announced on his blog licensing strategy VMware will adopt since November about upcoming quad-core processors:

Effective November 1st VMware will update their licensing policy to define a ?processor? as up to four cores. Meaning if you buy a 2 way Quad Core server, you will only need a 2 processor license from VMware.
