Download it from the Files panel in your Insight-live.com account (it costs $15 for 6 months access). Current downloads only include the program file, starter recipe, materials, overrides data is built in. It functions as level 2, without need of a key. No features have been removed. It will never expire.
No. Insight-live has a much broader scope and is far superior, it is the future (it still does the chemistry but is much more about data and access-from-anywhere). We still support desktop Insight for users who need to convert data for import to insight-live or who must work off-line.
There is a direct relationship between the way ceramic glazes fire and their chemistry. Insight is a calculation tool anyone can use to learn and harness the power of glaze chemistry.
Without glaze chemistry you'll never really have control and you could be a slave to your suppliers or the trafficing in recipes that never work.
A desktop application for Windows, Linux, Macintosh that you download and install.
Insight was first released in 1979 and has been used world wide since. It is an excellent teaching tool for demonstrating the principles of formula/analysis/unity, limit formulas, LOI, and material-oxide relationships.

"The method of calculating a Cornwall Stone substitute described in the manual has saved us more than the cost of INSIGHT."
"I use my INSIGHT program all of the time!"
"I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU.. Thanks so much - !!! I hope one day to really understand all about coordinating the oxides - its so so interesting and such a challenge to learn since I never took chemistry in school..... !"
"I use this program with great success in all my glaze formulations."
"I'm glad you understand this stuff so well. You have done an amazing job of keeping the software moving forward, and for the most part, very transparent."
"GOD BLESS YOU ALL OUT THERE FOR REACHING OUT TO MILLIONS LIKE ME WHO ARE IN QUEST FOR GOOD KNOWLEDGE LIKE THIS. I THANK-YOU ALL."
