Microsoft EULAs are notoriously self contradictory and inconsistent.  (My suspicion is that their code is as well.)  This is what happens when you keep incorporating changes without looking at the whole thing.

In January or February, we got a notice from one of our vendors that MS now considers multiple win server guests, on a single vmware host, only need a single license.  Now this poor guy is being told that a single install on a single machine requires multiple licenses.  

All of this is more painful than RMS trashing Open Source as not being adequately "free".
