Unfrontly they never gave redistuion rights to any one, even tho the file was free for a time. When i e-mailed them asking for the right to host it on compsci.ca they did not reply.

If Holt Software discontinues turing high schools will probably continue to use it to teach programming.

Probably not, the lack of support will kill it.

It's the same reason schools won't switch to OpenT.

That's terrible! If Turing dies, so does half the forum. Sure there will be more intelligence going around, but with less traffic can the ad money support the site?

As for now, I am archiving and triple backing up my Turing program files, for future generations.

Turing didn't offer much support to begin with, although I figure it's often just a perception that they could try to bother someone for it... and that there's a phone number listed somewhere.

Though even if the raw "I need HELPz with Turing!!!" traffic drops off, I don't think that would account for half the community. We might have been in trouble a couple of years ago, but now half of the raw traffic comes to /blog and the most concentrated activity happens during the DWITE rounds. Either is language independent.
Latest from compsci.ca/blog: Tony's programming blog. DWITE - a programming contest.

Well, we can only hope that this results in a more intelligent community. I'm very excited about all of things going on in the community lately. Plus what ever Tony has up his sleeve.

the one thing about the version that they are giving away on their site is that it doesn't compile programs into an exe file properly. to do it you will need a previous version.
