Relicense BES Server for BB10 ?
So the word I am getting now from my system admin is that Rim is telling us that we have to relicense our BES Server if we want to upgrade to BB10.. thats not going to happen.. Time to dump BB at my place of business. Anyone else hear same thing ?

- Hey, what did you expect ?
RIM must not be perceived as a "oh please, don't quit me I'm begging you" company.
This is enterprise stuff and RIM will probably have more trouble to handle than benefits to take. Then (the yes part) BES Express should be extended to offer FULL support of balance/fusion within a limited number of users, so that companies can ride a "try before you buy - or stand until you toggle" policy, with a minimal amount of change. This means BESX should be enabled to operate in // with an actual BES server. (Am I dreaming here ?).

What's funny, is that it will cost folks more to go to a new environment, quite a bit more instead of buying new fusion CALS for bb10 devices. Also besx is a free service as are the licenses and to expect RIM to just hand out free licenses for new devices on a completely new service that you have been already getting for free is just silly.
If you don't have a support agreement, and are taking advantage of a free service with free licenses from RIM, do you seriously believe you are owed anything for contributing nothing?
Am I missing something here
