    I found 10 particularly interesting.

    oh and it actually costs less than €2.50 a day plus tax. Can you buy a coffee for that?

    So when is it going to be available in other territories? Sorry to sound like a broken record … a broken record … a broken record but it has been over 18 months and still nothing to report on other territories. (Particularly the UK)

    Kind regards,

      Hi Nigel,

      We are not planning to roll the program out to other countries in ’09.  If you are a partner and need a development license, please contact your partner manager in the UK to obtain a copy. Or you can purchase it through sales as an end customer.  I apologize for any inconvenience this might cause you. Best,

    HHi Guys,
    I’m a SAP BW/BI consultant from Brazil both certified NetWeaver2004s and ABAP who’s just about to move to Canada. After almost 2 years of immigration process I’m finally just about to get my visa.
    I wonder if you people could give some information whether or not I will be able to buy this from Toronto, CA? I just can’t believe that I’m so close and so far away at the same time to get it.
    I would appreciate any comment.

      Hi Fernando,
      Congrats on your move. It sounds like a big change, also in the climate that you are moving to/from. 
      You may want to contact the local sales team in Canada and inquire about the perpetual NW Development License.  Or, if you are an SAP partner, you can purchase a partner license. Unfortunately the subscription program is not going to be available in Canada in ’09.  Regards,

    Its an excellent thing SAP has done. But unfortunately for people in other countries, you can not have dev. license without being a partner. For someone who’s starting up, can not become partner unless he’s built his product but then how he’s going to build his product without the development license. Seems like the chicken and egg problem. Hoping that SAP will roll out this great initiative in other countries soon.
