In the News Hard to believe, but articles are popping up at business websites claiming that venerable Hewlett-Packard may fail. In their most recent fiasco, HP wrote off a loss of $8.8 of their $11.1 US billion acquisition of Autonomy and have alleged fraud in the deal. Revenue is down 7% from a year ago and the stock has hit a 10-year low. The company is laying off 27K employees but that may not be enough. Some speculate HP might be broken up into parts with buy-outs involved. This article from last May offers a good in-depth analysis of how all these problems came to pass.

I use a HP workstation at work, a Z600 series. Well built and decent workstation.


A good *workstation*? from *HP*?? The day of miracles has come! ;)
My memory of HP workstations is that they're all crap and the only good stuff is the servers and switches.
