This kinda replaces the server 2000 choice of license by per-seat vs per-server terminology?

No, not both, one of the other
If you have a user that has multiple devices (desktop, laptop, windows mobile phone) a user cal is the best option
If you have 1 pc for every employee, user cal is probably the best option
If you have more employee's than you have computers and there is sharing going on, device cals
And you can do both. Just buy the kind you need.

Let me understand this....
Licensing is necessary for each user (Understood). That's the way I am
used to seeing with server 2000, etc.
Licensing for each device? (Not clear).
Does this mean each workstation needs a 'device' license on top of the
What about printers?
Printers attached to the server?
Also scanners, FAX devices, etc.?
Finally, can I buy a 20 CAL pack and use 10 for users and 10 for devices or
any mix I want?
