End Of Life (EOL) Notice for Gridgen on AIX

FORT WORTH, TX (28 June 2004) – Pointwise, Inc. announced today that Version 15 will be the last major release of their Gridgen software to support IBM's AIX operating system. Current Gridgen customers will recognize this as the "ibm" executable. It is possible that Gridgen executables shipped as part of the next production release will run on these systems. However, their performance is not guaranteed.

This announcement adds to the list of EOLd operating systems. The EOL for Tru64 and IRIX pre 6.5 was previously announced.

All questions regarding this EOL notice should be emailed to gridgen@pointwise.com.
