InfiView 1.0: An AJAX graphics work in progress
Bindows-based platform offers powerful interactive capabilities to developers who can master its quirks

InfiView competes directly with Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flex, and Curl. There are other ways to create RIA (rich Internet application) graphics, based on ASP.Net, Ruby on Rails, and Java EE (Enterprise Edition) with AJAX and graphics extensions.
I would strongly encourage developers who are interested in InfiView to browse through its Web site, play with the demos, and view the screencasts. If it's still of interest, you can arrange for an evaluation of the InfiView Developer's Kit; if that passes muster, you can buy a development license for $195 per developer. Deploying InfiView can be free if you're using it on a free Web site, $5,000 per server per year under an Enterprise license, or $25 per user per year under an SOA/SaaS (software as a service) license.
InfiView could be a strong option for producing interactive Web graphics applications for some shops, especially those already familiar with Bindows. Developers who want to work in a more conventional programming language with better development tools might want to consider other options, such as Silverlight or Curl.
