vrf Looking for VEE resources, such as this VRF mailing list

Question asked by VRFuser on Apr 9, 2004
Hi Scott,

already available on the market:

LabVIEW for Linux

Development Systems
   Full Development System
   Professional Development System

Add-On Toolsets
   Application Builder
   Internet Developers Toolkit
   SPC Toolkit

Had a 4 weeks trial package last year(free of charge!)which was really fun
to work with; both speed and functions.

Wondering why NI does invest in linux - looks like they do see the potential
for linux T&M.

I do, too.


Best regards,
Stefan

Note that these would be the same engineers who are currently involved in enhancing VEE for Windows; we'd have to rob Peter to pay Paul in terms of engineering resources.

We just don't see that size of T&M Linux base and we do have such a base in Windows right now. From that, I find it pretty easy to draw a conclusion about the probability of our adding Linux to the stable at some cost in Windows progress.
