I have some XP boxes with OEM license. Need to convert them to Virtual (P2V). They will be hosted by VMware. These converted machines will be accessed using RD either by thin clients or PCs with Ubuntu.
Which license (by the MS view point) should I buy in order to make it legally?
You may want to make enquirers with Microsoft Licensing!
