If these guys want to view maps on their
intranet/corporate LAN, Mappoint desktop is
legal. Gotta buy a license for each browser that
will look at the maps and a license for the
server. Of course this kind of setup is a
nightmare for the MicroSoft EULA police and is SO
easy to abuse. 

Pepperwhite looks very intersting.. surprised I
never saw it before. Sooner or later someone will
come up with a very affordable mapping Webservice
for personal web sites/small business use. The
$15000 per year for MSws is just out of reach for
this market.
