Informix is giving away the Windows NT version of its Dynamic Server database, worth $75,000, to encourage application developers to the software.
Informix says the offer will initially only be available in north America, but Terry Lawlor, UK marketing manager, added: "The intention is to roll it out very quickly. We'll wait for some feedback from the US trialists and tweak the package accordingly, probably adding to it."
Lawlor expects the offer will be available in Europe from July, coinciding with Informix' worldwide user conference.
The offer was announced by Joe Niemann, vice president distribution channels, at Informix' US developer and partner conference in Burlingham, California. Informix is more closely associated with Unix than NT and Niemann acknowledged Informix needs NT applications to be developed for the database.
The free licence is for one developer and 50 users, and comes with 60 days technical support. US users will be able to download the freebie from between 15 June until the end of the year.
