Microsoft won't charge more for dual-core licenses


— 5:22 AM on October 19, 2004

C|Net has learned that Microsoft will not saddle dual-core processors with additional licensing fees. The company will continue to charge its customers on a per-processor basis, defining a processor as "that which plugs into a single socket in a circuit board." This implies that Windows XP Home, which does not support dual processors, will be compatible with dual core chips.
