RiverMuse FreeCool slipped until late Jan/early Feb

at least the public release anyway. I expect if you work somewhere interesting, then it may be worthwhile contacting them in the meantime.

RiverMuse are aiming their offerings solidly at Tivoli, Micromuse and OpenView event correlation users. RiverMuse are going to be using an open core strategy, so far blazed by Zenoss and Hyperic, in the network management space. The open core product is RiverMuse FreeCool and the feature added, for sale product, will be RiverMuse ProCool.

These guys must lead a charmed life, if anybody else tried to use the names above, they’d have a horde of lawyers snapping at their heals pretty darn quick.
