From my understanding, it's not actually free. It should be the Developer's Edition and each chair should have a license for it. In quantity, they can be as low as 30 bucks from a good MS authorized dealer.


I investigated this the other day yep Developer editions aren't free but minimal cost - plus you will need to go through an authorised dealer. (At least in the UK) Not sure whether you get things like the Stream insight framework with that either.

Don't forget to count any licences available from MSDN, MPP or Action Pack etc.

I always thought that people used aliases to make things clearer but I cannot believe how many people do it to save a few keystrokes and make it more obscure. Ridonkulous!!!

I can imagine managers and directors saying, "What? You want another SQL Server license just for testing?"

I've always have gotten the reading from our legal staff that setting up a server for dev or testing was considered legal and free as far as licensing is concerned. But it has to be in a separate domain.

Have they all been wrong?


Not free.
Technically even the Evaluation editions are for that - evaluation, and not testing (whether MS would actually bother to persue you for that might be another point, but that means you're depending on their benevolence).
That's what the DEV editions / msdn platforms are for. Certainly if you're using unpaid for full versions for testing, from everything I've ever been told by Microsoft licencing (see how I copped out there), that would be a breech and they could spank you very hard in the wallet.

Here's a place where it would appear that most people still suffer "getting it right the first time".
