Most of my regular readers probably know by now that I am developing OpenMP-codes for work. I am also using Linux, more precisely Ubuntu Linux (even more precisely: Kubuntu Linux 6.10). When it comes to compilers for this platform, the Intel Compiler is one of the few affordable choices available – at least if you need OpenMP-support. Affordable in this case used to mean free for private use, cheap for academia and very reasonably priced for everyone else. I am being told by my students that Intel has changed that and the compiler is no longer free for private use, only an evaluation license valid for 30 days is available. I find this decision unfortunate, but of course I don't know the logic behind it.
