'Since then, people have told me that the situation is more complicated; that his testimony won't necessarily help the prosecution much, and that the deal will make it easier for ELCOM to argue its case.

In just a year, that attitude has gotten them on the wrong side of Red Hat, of Russian developers porting a clone to OS/2, and many of their own users."
