SharePoint Foundation 2013 licensing needed ?

Hi People,

I'd like to deploy the latest edition of SharePoint Foundation 2013 SP1 on my current Windows Server 2012 R2, the database will be on the separate SQL Server 2012 host, so I wonder if I need additional license or it is totally free for me to use with 500 users internally ?

Obligatory legal statement: Licensing advice on EE is an opinion and not  is not legally binding. Call Microsoft.

You will need windows server licenses, windows server CALs, and with 500 users, likely a SQL server license(s) (express won't cut it for that many users) and SQL Server CALs.

So sharepoint foundation itself will be free, of course. But none of the surrounding technology to run it will be.

ok, so assuming the SQL server license is already covered by other license type, Does the SP Foundation is free of charge ?
SharePoint foundation itself is free of charge.
Thanks !
