Experience shows that, although all of the TCS testing was done in the
run-up to the 6.0 release, on the day, the 6.0 builds were re-done under
the directive of Inprise management and the 6.0 release went out with NO

Does your comment signal that the Inprise-built release is not "certified"
?? Do you have any knowledge of what will be considered a "certified" build?

So customers can't buy support from Inprise at present, because there are
no certified builds?

What does "internally certify" indicate? Do you know whether this means
Inprise plans to hire a QA team for InterBase?
