Sure i do :)

Nope not only. Maintanance means also product information, knowledge
base, installation support, installation kits and it is the base for

No one can avoid that. But you get a contract that is for this one
machine (or more if you want). If you break the contract, maintenance is
lost. Thats how maintenance works everywhere.

Ask enterprise-presales@xxxxxxxx for more details, a license, a example
contract whatever.
