IBM changes dual-core software pricing

IBM today announced a change in its software licensing, favoring the new dual-core server processors. Until recently IBM and other manufacturers said that a dual-core processor should be regarded as two processors, and should thus be priced accordingly.

But the actual added value of multi-core processing and the lower-end Windows and Linux market changed IBM's mind. They will now offer the software to dual-core processors for the price of a single-core.
