Microsoft to support revokation of TS Device licensing in Longhorn

Per the Terminal Service's team blog, Microsoft has enabled support for revokation of TS Device licensing in Longhorn Terminal Services.  This should come as great news for the 3 people who are actually running 2003 Terminal Services in Per Device mode

We use "per device" because of shift workers that share the same client device across 3 shifts so this is good news. To make it great news, I'd rather see the 52-89 day window dropped to a shorter time frame or even (gasp!) configurable.

Scott,

You make a great point on why an organization would have a good use for TS Device-based licensing. The only reason why I made the comment that I did is because once people realized that User-based licensing in 2003 TS Licensing wasn't enforced, many people switched to using that even in cases of Per Device licensing to just avoid the chance that a device wouldn't be able to connect due to the lack of a license. But it would be nice if there were additional options to tune the licensing.
