HP-UX 10.20 discontinuance


Short question about 10.20 discontinuance..
(see http://www.hp.com/workstations/products/unix/operating/hpux1020/discont.html )

I've got some large application development servers based on 10.20 and our developers are so touchy about compilation/patching that even patching the systems your y2k compliance took major convincing. That was the last time they were patched (and the last time they needed patching - they work just fine for what we do)

I myself don't want to move these systems up to 10.20 because of the administration nightmares involved, so I plan to leave them there..

Anyway, the question relates to what is mentioned at http://www.hp.com/workstations/products/unix/operating/hpux11/cookbook/cookbook.html saying that 10.20 will be off the price list. Does that mean that it'll be free??

Later,
Bill
It works for me (tm)

Off the pricelist means that customers won't be able to order the product any longer. Being of the price list is the first step in desupport of a product.

It doesn't mean that it is free.
