We at Revelation Software want to wish you and yours a happy and healthy holiday season. These are tough economic times and we truly appreciate your continued support of our company and products. We will kick off the new year with the release of OpenInsight Development Suite 9.0. As we stated at our User's Conference earlier this year, "The future's so bright you gotta wear shades!"
OpenInsight for Linux (OIL) Discontinued
Effective December 1, 2008 Revelation Software will discontinue OpenInsight for Linux (OIL) and no longer accept orders for this product. Our decision is based upon a lack of demand for this product and that both RedHat and Suse have abandoned development for the Linux desktop. Installing OpenInsight for Windows on Linux based servers is still supported. OpenInsight for Windows can be installed on Linux servers with Windows desktops connecting using a SAMBA share and using the Universal Driver 3.0 or 4.5.
