*BSD, Linux, and Solaris are considered separate OSes so you would need 
a 2-OS
license in this case.

It's a per-developer license on the licensed OS(es) and can be activated 
as many
times as needed for your work.  There is a default rate limit but we can 
that on request and there's also a self-service way of doing this that 
is presented
when you run out of activations.

After your purchase, please fill out the NDA and send it to us:


Please let me know if you have any other questions.
