I remember reading that with dual cores software companies would start to charge twice the license fee for software applications. For example, if you owned a dual core system, they would charg you twice the fee for, say, Windows. That would be especially so on server systems. But after a battle, Microsoft has formally stated that they would not charge twice the license for dual core systems. But thats not to be said for other software manufacturers...
