T2 licensing for IBM software

IBM announced the PVU for the UltraSPARC T2 a few days ago: Processor Value Unit Licensing for Distributed SW. An UltraSPARC T2 counts as 50 PVUs. That´s really good news. Why? Well, wait for the benchmarks and do the math yourself ;)

BTW: The nice thing at PVUs: they have a political component. Thus PVUs are not really based of the real perfomance, they are based on the performance, IBM wants to admit. So, even when they don´t admit that T2 is better than Power6, they help us by making their software cheaper, and they can´t make them more expensive, as this would hurt their hardware bussiness by admiting, that T2 is better then Power6. Sometimes Catch-22´s are really funny ...
