    Is ‘CPU’ still a relevant unit? My desktop computer at work has two of them with two cores each, so does that count as 1 (computer), 2 (CPUs) or 4 (CPU cores), and consequently use 20, 40 or 80% of a single licence?

    Your desktop would count as one. CPU has been a term that we’ve used to mean a single computer.

    I thought so, and I suppose everybody handles it this way anyway. It just seems like an outdated term in this context.
