I have a simple doubt about licencing Ext Designer.

In http://www.sencha.com/store/designer/ says that I can "Install and use Ext Designer on unlimited workstations."

But in the full license (http://www.sencha.com/store/designer/license.php), item 3.1 says that "Licensee may install and use one copy of the Software on up to the Permitted Number* of its compatible computers; or"

So... Can I buy one license and install on every computer providing that the use of the Software is not concurrent or do I have to buy one license per computer for the entire developers team?

* From http://www.sencha.com/store/designer/license.php item 1.6
"Permitted Number" means one (1) unless otherwise indicated under a valid license (e.g., volume license) granted by Ext.

I think the license text is more restrictive than it was supposed to be, so we need to fix it. The Designer license is intended to be a per non-concurrent user license. This means that you CAN install it on your PC, your laptop and your home computer and use it from all three locations at different times, but the license is tied to you specifically. It's not transferable to another team member at any time, even temporarily and someone else is not allowed to use your Designer license when you're not (aka it's NOT a floating license).

Thanks extmullany for your answer. Now another doubt.

Is there any kind of licensing that's not bound to a person but to a company?

@mark The short answer is that all our license options are per developer based. The long answer is that if you go over our Enterprise license ceiling of 100 users, then we can structure a company license for you. But even that will be based on the number of developers that are using the software, so it's still sort of a per developer license.
