Re: Why so pro-Autonomy?
Two seperate issues.
1. If Autonomy WERE cooking the books (which has not been established) then yes, they should be punished for that
2. I have no sympathy for a company that wants to buy another one, pays to have the due diligence done, ignores both the concerns of their own CFO and any concerns that were in the due diligence (which they admitted to not having thourghly read) and then cries foul.
If I bought a house that a surveyor said was falling down, but I ignored the report and the advice, that's on me, not on the people selling it.
