Re: Put an x86 processor in the dock?

I'm not that great with licenses, but why not flip the license around, and license the dataset? The processor it runs on in this case is irrelevant to the data that is being worked on. License the data, and then the user gets the ability to either underpower or overpower the system according to their own needs in order to use the data for their work. If they want to just slowly churn through an emulated Outlook on ARM, then when back in the office dock it into a full PC, the same dataset is being used.
