I think for even the largest of companys, £6Billion (or ~$11.5Billion) is a shi*load.

you no what i dont actually think it is a mistale there is wuiet a few on there for that price.

but surely 7 billion for software ??

reading the description it says its for distributing business critical information over a network id say its like government software or something super confidential.

still seems like a total overkill to me lol

haha LMAO

read the description.

I Was also thinking,for government agencies this would be handy,maybe the 6 billion includes unlimited licenses,So they could distrubute it thoughout the agency.

I emailed them to ask, and got an email back saying there was no price for that product, I clicked the link, and who would guess the price has vanished
