Lavalys Everest Transitions into New Software

Popular system information, diagnostics, and benchmarking suite Lavalys Everest (or plain "Everest"), is said to be undergoing an organizational overhaul, with its developer, Lavalys Inc. forking into two companies. Currently Lavalys is split into two parts, with software development and aftersales support located in Hungary, and sales located in Canada. We're getting to know that the Hungarian part is breaking up the partnership into a company of its own, named FinalWire and working on its own software functionally identical to Everest, called (for now?) as AIDA64 (pronounced /ˈaɪdəˌ/ 64). Incidentally, AIDA32 is the first name of Everest before it went on to become Everest.

What's with the change, and why is it important? Well, Everest has been commercially successful to enterprise users, as well and enthusiasts. If virtually every developer in Lavalys is now under FinalWire, there won't be an update of Everest for a very long time, if not forever. Under Everest's license, a user is entitled to updates for a mentioned period of time. To ease out the transition, FinalWire will likely provide continued support and updates to existing Everest users. As for what's going to be distinctly new about AIDA64, our contact mentions that the software will retain the UI of its predecessor (since Lavalys developers reserved copyrights to almost all of the code), all its functionality, and new features: notably all 64-bit benchmarks, a new SSD module that provides model-specific diagnostics of any SSD installed, and a new 64-bit system stability test mode (helps overclockers or high-uptime server builders). FinalWire should make an official announcement later this week.
