if you can get a cd from somewhere, the issue then is indeed the licensing. and in case you don't know, alias versions older than 7.5 don't use flexlm, so the usual "ways" some people have don't work with that.

sure they might mess it up but i'm just not sad about the possibility of a non-x86 desktop box with proper software support. whether that'll be a success or not? time will tell.
