Whenever I see these type of notes I am disappointed. The hype is "better resources" etc but the truth usually is higher prices, loss of the technology and innovation<http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l/201407/msg00013.html> leader in the company, and fewer sometimes no further enhancements. I'd love to be proved wrong but the track record of nearly every single software company<http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l/201407/msg00013.html> that I've ever seen acquired is the same. (I can think of only one exception so far.) Some just go downhill faster than others.
