Happy Birthday, FLEXlm!
February, 1988 was the month when I started the development of FLEXlm. I recall that, at the time, we all felt that we might have a good 3-5 year run with the product before someone like Sun or HP came in and took away the market.
We never would have expected it to be going strong 20 years later. I certainly would not have thought that some of the same code would be in the product now. But, as my son likes to say, "I can predict the future - I'm just usually wrong".
At any rate, here's a big "Happy Birthday" to FLEXlm!!!
