Hi Mikhail,

I am still using the last free SGE (6.2u5) and that is working for me well. I 
had to update a few scripts to it is recognising newer kernels. 

Having said that, I am aware there is the Son of Gridengine which is 
maintained by a colleague in Liverpool if I am not mistaken. As far as I know 
this one is free. The link is here:


Whether it will be still free in 200 years time I cannot tell of course. ;-)

I hope that helps a bit.

All the best from a dull London
