Well you don't know your history very well at all. Try reading BIG BLUES for a starter course. IBM screwed up a ton of operating systems, anybody remember Series/1? Boca Raton is where Estridge built the successful 5150 system. Period.
IBM is doing well for the shareholders, gotta admit that. Hey, that January 2012 salary cut will also be a big winner too. Too bad you may not work for IBM to be hit by it.
