How are floating licenses different from additional concurrent licenses?

The only difference is the price. Functionally they are exactly the same, and in fact, they are indistinguishable from each other within the product. While the first floating license is more expensive, all additional concurrent licenses (also known as incremental or additional seats) are sold at a reduced price.

What's the difference between fixed and floating licenses?

A fixed license lets you run FME Desktop on a single computer, whereas a floating license is shared by multiple people. For example, if you have five users, you could purchase a fixed license for each computer. Or you could purchase a floating license with additional seats. If you purchase a floating license with two additional seats, then up to three users could have FME Desktop open at any one point in time. More

What is Annual Maintenance and how does it work?

Annual maintenance is included with the purchase of all FME products for the first year. It includes software updates, product support, full credit for upgrades, and more. To continue receiving the benefits, you will be need to renew on an annual basis. More
