First of all - there is no pricing agreement for anyone outside of the
EPICS single seat licenses that was reached. The remainder of this letter
only refers to those single seat licenses that were issued.

LANL will be upgrading to Tornado.

Only read on if you have a single seat license purchased through KSC-------

For those of you unfamilliar with the EPIC License Model, here is an outline:

        1. EPICS Licenses are sold to EPICS Approved Canidates on
           a single seat basis for $5,000.  This includes one target
           license as well as the BSP of choice.

        2. Customers are eligible to license VxWorks under the EPICS pricelist
           if and only if:

                A. They are using VxWorks soley for work done on the EPICS
                   project.

                B. They are part of a Not For Profit organization and have
                   limited funding with which to purchase EPICS Seats.

        3. EPICS Licensees shall be submited in advance through Bob
           Dalesio.  
*	   These requests will now be sumitted to the
           regional mgr. in the shipping territory for approval.

        4. Distribution is done by Bob Dalesio of Los Alamos National
           Labs.

           Labs.

        the provisions of the EPICS License Agreement.  This means that
        EPICS can license PowerPC, Pentium, or any other supported arch.
        under the terms and conditions of the EPICS License Agreement.
	There will be a charge of $1500 for subsequent BSPs.
        As stated above, all transactions will need aproval from regional
        mgmt. before considered under the EPICS License Agreement.
