My colleague Larry O’Brien has weighed in regarding Borland’s moves to rename/reposition/rejigger its Core SDP products into a new set of application life cycle suites. One upon a time, Larry was one of the biggest and most loyal Borland supporters imaginable, but his faith has waned, and waned and waned, and now it has waned some more.

His current blog posting is “Borland Gives Up On Core SDP: I Wonder How Much That Cost ‘Em?”, and it references one of his older SD Times columns from 2004, “Only Nixon Would Go To China.” Both are worth reading.
