Ooooh first post....
Wow, wow and wow.
I can't recall another trial with an IT element thats been so interesting. Autonomy/HP is really all about accounting and valuations <meh>.
This is about the stuff you and I do day in/day out, build, test, deliver, debug, repeat.
I wonder if the people who were giving evidence on behalf of FJS and PO thought that this was just another delivery board or SLT meeting and that being somewhat economical with the actualite was acceptable? Clearly not now. The revelation of a referral to the DPP means some of these people will now be consulting very expensive lawyers indeed. The boot is on the other foot.
Also how FJS/PO could keep a straight face when they said there were no bugs is beyond me. Any system of this size will be plagued with them, especially a client server system.
I also recall Private Eye taking up the cudgels on behalf of the SPM's as well.
I think this one will run and run, not perhaps as long as SCO/IBM and Groklaw but might be fun.
All the best to the SPM's, my advise is when your opponent is down on the floor, thats absolutely the best and right time to administer a damm good kicking.
