Accounts whistleblower blackmailed Autonomy for a payoff, Mike Lynch tells High Court


Re: How the lusers must feel

If we changed "didn't work" to "worked for very specific situations but was old as the next big thing" it would be true - Autonomy brought a lot of companies, many of which had known, viable products.

Alternatively, consider this the sequel to "The Emperor's New Clothes" where HP is the Emperor, Autonomy is his fantastic new clothes, they've added a few snakes (lawyers) and a long suffering judge listening to the Emperor pretend he only got nothing because of some shenanigans in purchasing the materials for the new clothes.

Spoiler: the snakes will probably bite everyone.
