Wellll... yes, maybe, but companies are failing to manage the huge trap that this can lead them into with software licensing, particularly in hot desk environments with roaming profiles.
Take Microsoft's policy, for example: "Software Licenses are needed for all devices, be they traditional PCs, thin clients, or blade PCs, etc. that are used to access virtual images of Office, Project and/or Visio."
So, we've granted a couple of copies of Visio Professional to a couple of users. But they're wandering round the whole office, using numerous PCs with their roaming profile. It's certainly *easier* to track where they've been, I guess, but the potential cost is much higher.
