IBM may offer free DB2 database

November 18, 2005

[From ZDNet]

Teo Wan Ping, IBM Singapore's brand manager for information management, told ZDNet Asia that IBM could "potentially offer" a free starter edition of DB2, as part of the company's strategy to win over developers to its database product.

IBM currently does not have a free, standalone version of its DB2 product, unlike free competing products like Microsoft's SQL Server 2005 Express Edition and Oracle's Database XE released recently.
