SharePoint foundation licensing for internal usage only

Hi People,

I'm planning to deploy SharePoint Foundation 2013 (free version) on top of Windows Server 2012 with the database connected to the SQL Server 2012 Standard.

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-foundation-help/what-is-sharepoint-HA010378184.aspx

As at the moment based on my CAL on the Windows Server 2008 clustered Print and File server, I can see I have 350 CALs.

Do I need to buy the same amount of CAL to cover up for the same SharePoint access ?

Thanks

Hi,
simple answer: no - one Windows CAL for the user is sufficient - regardless if the user uses SharePoint, file server ...
(compare it with a Office license - you can use Excel + Word + PPT ...)

OK, so in this case my license is covered already :-)
That sounds great.
