Software Only - Non Microsoft Options
Currently the only other option available are the many other database access tools that can import the data disk files. Many of these exist and can be independent sourced by the user. This includes the many open source products.
mySQL is one of several databases available freely and offers a good interface in which to manipulate the data to create your own datasets from the data disks. Plenty of free software exists in support of mySQL as well. This option is really available only to those who are proficient in the use of SQL. For those interested in this option you may access the mySQL homepage with the link provided below:

At the present time there are no plans in place to replicate the current software for the LINUX operating system. We recognize that this operating system continues to grow in popularity and open source is a reality for developing software, but our experience with the various LINUX systems and belief that all software should be free makes LINUX an unattractive option. Our software is geared to novice users who wish only to use what they currently have installed and feel comfortable using what they are familiar with. While our products do require a higher level of proficiency than others currently available, this also gives the user comfortable with Microsoft products an opportunity to create their own systems. Microsoft products offer exceptional value and are widely distributed at the present time. Till this reality is no longer true our future offerings will continue to be software development using Microsoft products.
U.S. Lottery Software Development
Recent arrests of prominent alien Online Gaming executives by U.S. authorities has halted our intended plans to further develop U.S. Lottery programs. As is often the case when dealing with U.S. Government authorities we do not wish to become subject to a test case as to whether the software aids and abets in online gambling. Our software development is legal in Canada and elsewhere. Regrettably as Microsoft and others have found defense against the U.S. Government is a difficult and costly experience. Our products are designed primarily for 649 games in the Canadian market and work well with the other 649 games worldwide. We view our products as recreational and an aid to reduce the odds for the average lotto player. We trust this will answer the many questions we have had to date on development plans for U.S. Lottery Games. We have updated our User Licensing Agreement to reflect the recent arrests and on legal advice will not be actively developing products intended for export to the United States until the whole online gambling issue has been resolved in the United States courts. We greatly appreciate our many American visitors and hope they continue to use our website. Where ever you maybe and whatever game you are playing we truly hope the next draw lands you the big one!
