trueSpace & Caligari close the doors
Roman Ormandy has sent a letter out to customers of trueSpace and Caligari, telling the sad story that they’ve finally been forced to close the doors.
You may have heard that Microsoft Corporation, reacting to difficult business conditions, has been evaluating many of the products it produces and making the difficult decision to reduce investment in certain areas.
It is with regret that I have to tell you that trueSpace is one of the products affected. As a consequence, you will see reduction or elimination of services offered for trueSpace. For example, there will be no phone or email support offered for trueSpace by Microsoft, and our web site may also be affected. While the dates are not absolutely fixed, some services and contacts may come to an end as early as Friday May 22nd 2009, while others will continue as long as possible with no firm cutoff date available yet.
The rest of the letter goes on to state that people need to go ahead and download the software while they can, and use the company forums to share information on any other community websites that they might move to.
