Patrick Joly (Joly.Patrick@ic.gc.ca) asked about licensing Stata for
use on dual platforms:

Special types of licenses such as the one mentioned above are possible,
but the details are something which it is far safer for our sales
department to deal with than for we mere technical types on Statalist
to attempt to answer!  The answer Patrick received from our sales department
for Stata 8 still holds true for Stata 9.  I believe pricing would
depend on several factors, including type of license and whether this
was being done as a new purchase or an upgrade from a Stata 8.

So, for such questions, it is probably best to send an inquiry
directly to stata@stata.com describing exactly what is desired
so that the details can be explained.

I will have someone contact Patrick about his particular license
request.
