product for the newest version (3.1) to require one license per
system the distribution is installed on. The company will provide a
certificate of license authenticity it says it expects to find on
each system running OpenLinux Workstation. From the
reviewer's guide to Caldera OpenLinux Workstation (5.3MB
"OpenLinux Workstation licensing has changed from
previous versions. OpenLinux Workstation, as a product, is licensed
per system and cannot be deployed without limit Caldera will
provide a certificate of license authenticity (COLA) with each unit
sold, an Caldera expects each customer to have a COLA for each
system that deploys OpenLinux Workstation.

variety of open source software, there are a wide variety of
licenses, each with different distribution restrictions

as well as other Copyrighted material."
