Subject Why we chose the Aug 2001 Date for the next beta license
Author Paul Beach
My marketing response...

"We chose that date, so anybody who wants to use the 6.0 beta "indefinitely"
can do so :-), there is nothing magic or hidden in that choice of date. In
the interim, we are going to try and get the final 6.0 binaries released as
soon as we can get the relevant people from Inprise to recognise how
valuable this would be."

Ann's more direct analysis

"A) it was a joke
B) it wasn't funny
C) absolutely no conclusion should be drawn except that
we are tired of generating new beta license keys."
