For anyone wondering what came of this: I filed a story to my editor 
tonight, and it'll probably be published (www.techrepublic.com) tomorrow 
or Monday. I think you guys will like it, and I thank you all for the 
healthy debate. Because of the debate I was able to ask smart questions 
to executives from IBM and Micro Focus.

I'll post the link when it is available.
