The boss will *never* open up our source. Free trials have always been part
of the sales plan and running a repository might be on the cards (we have a
hosted Linux server doing very little). The licence is 'per installation'
but you might be able to subvert the intention, if not the letter of the
licence with a dual boot machine.
