Subject RE: [IBDI] Porting to other OS'
Author Claudio Valderrama C.
Interbase was ported to *BSD on Japan at Rios Corporation, see the page
"useful links" in my site.
The problem is they completed the port of IB 4.X and then the agreement with
the old ISC was terminated. I don't know if it has to do at that time with
ISC being pure commercial and Rios Corp. offered IB4-BSD as a free download.
Anyway, it would be interesting if Markus Kemper can contact them and see
if they are willing to continue, now that things have changed.
