This is all very nice, but has anybody actually been able to buy the
Intel compilers? I mean a license that can be used on a multi-user
Beowulf cluster? The only quotes (on the web site and when I contacted
Intel or hibbertgroup.com) I got were for single user licenses.
That is useless for a Beowulf cluster at a university where the users
change continuously.

I asked for a license based on the number of concurrent users or
something similar. I have not heard anything from them ever since ...
