As both servers and desktops begin to embrace dual-core platforms, including in configurations with more than one physical processor, licensing can become tricky when a lot of companies sell different licenses to products based on the number of “processors” the product sees.

Oracle has taken some heat for introducing this model, but perhaps in the future they will change their tune.
