Well … it’s getting closer at least.
According to Jon Paris & Susan Gantner’s blog iDevelop, you can now get the standard 70 day trial for RPG Open Access.
Details can be found on the IBM Announcement letter.
I still think the feature needs to be included in the OS … but at least you can trial a vendors product that uses the feature without having to buy it.
