OffByZero's Cobalt effort

Software development is all about automating people's processes. I love it when somebody makes the difficult simple. That has gotta be the holy grail of software development. Gotta respect the work done by OffByZero's Cobalt release ...

OffByZero Cobalt is a turnkey software licensing solution for .NET. It integrates with .NET software in a matter of minutes, and provides a powerful and flexible means of licensing the application and individual features within it.

Cobalt supports a variety of platforms (including Citrix and VMWare) and provides for a range of licensing scenarios (including offline licensing, product activation, and dynamic licence configuration).

There's a great screencast demonstrating Cobalt integration at and detailed documentation at
