DB2 on Mac

As Antonio Cangiano describes in a lot more detail, as of today you can now download a free version of DB2 Express-C for Mac OS X.

Likewise, the idea of having a DB2 version for Mac was unthinkable up to a few years ago. Yet today we finally have a copy of DB2 Express-C for Mac OS X that’s available for download. Aside from this being an acknowledgment of the growing importance of Mac as a development and business platform, I feel it underlines IBM’s ability to change. The desire that a few of us mac addicts had, coupled with reasonable pressure from the community, was sufficient enough to make DB2 on Mac a reality. This matters and appeals to both the developer and the technical evangelist in me.
