Phoronix: Attachmate Completes Its Novell Acquisition
Attachmate Group has announced today that it's completed its acquisition of Novell. There were several interested parties in poaching Novell, but in the end it ended up being procured by Attachmate, as announced last November...
Would you prefer they fire everyone and rely on "the community" for programming?
They sht on many developer hours, they sht on own RnD, they sht on developer families, they sht on Nokia reputation. What MS did is just cut huge hole - the essence of Nokia, and replace it guts with own - from rice-programmers.
Common, they stopped just millimeter away to renaming Nokia into Micria. The name is only thats left. How could Nokia TM pull this? I guess, very generous bribe.
Community is "every possible entity, corporate, governmental or private working towards one goal".
Community is MUCH BETTER than rice programmers, yes! Rice, not only because they are chinese (means not nation, but origin where prices are low), but means they become rice for code, barely any money.
I would prefer MS burn in hell.
See 90x family movie Richie Rich on how to transform without fcking up. Sorry, I mean doing it "microsofts way".
Next day you wake up in Nokia dev pants and have this situation, you will rethink your original question. I hope it does not happen to you though.
