Subject: Re: An Unpleasant Proposition
I would be shock if something like this append. A scenario like this
is like a bad horror movie to me. I saw to many good products, with
good technical support go bad after such a take over. On our mainframe
we are stuck with a lot of those products, because there is no real
competiton. On our unix servers, they try for 2 years to put CA-
Unicenter up and running and still, patch after patch, we are still
waiting for the promised land....
I'm hoping something like this never append to SAS, because I'll have
to take up Perl instead.
