continued viability nor as a significant advantage over competing

"It is in Inprise/Borland's long-term interest financially to
find a partnership that can create more value than was possible
with the proposed Corel merger. If Inprise/Borland does not

is not found, Inprise/Borland customers and partners should
consider moving to a vendor better positioned and capable of
providing long-term presence in the e-business application
development tool and middleware market."
